Rudyard Kipling's Verse, Inclusive Edition 1885–1926
From the library of film producer Alexander Korda
First US edition. Hardback bound in red cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board. 21 × 14cm, 862pp.
Not signed as such, but this copy belonged to the film producer Alexander Korda and has his ex libris name plate to the front pastedown. Korda was a Hungarian-born British film producer and director and screenwriter, who founded his own film production studios and film distribution company. He produced such classics as The Private Life of Henry VIII, Rembrandt, Things To Come, The Thief of Baghdad and The Third Man.
A decent collection of Kipling's poetry, this edition includes 37 poems written since the previous "Inclusive Edition" which contained his verse to 1918.
Good condition. The boards are bumped to the edges and slightly marked. The text is printed in India paper and as such creases quite easily. Some pages opened a little roughly but generally sound. One page of the contents has loss to the edges and some underlining but the main body of text is in good, clean condition.
Please note: Due to the recent price rise from USPS, we will be putting our postage rates to USA up for which we apologise but have no choice.
