"The companion catalogue to the monumental exhibition of the works of Rudyard Kipling held at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library in 2007 celebrates the achievement of this writer who appealed to a vast audience with his novels, poems, and works for young readers. The David Alan Richards collection documents the variety and breadth of Kipling's printed production. This catalogue, a checklist of the exhibition with selected images of items on display, traces the bibliographic expanse of Kipling and his works. For anyone interested in the purest highlights of a Kipling collection, this book makes the work easy. A browse through the sections of the exhibition will reveal the nature of more than over 200 items on display, creating a timeline of Kipling's best-loved works and many extremely rare or little known pieces."--BOOK JACKET.
