Kim.

London: Macmillan and co., 1901. [Literature] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.[8] 413 [3]. With 10 black and white illustrated plates. Publisher's red cloth, with gilt titles to spine, and gilt elephant motif stamped to upper. Top edge gilt. No inscriptions, light occasional spotting, some foxing to edges, covers lightly worn. Very good indeed. Kipling's famous Indian adventure, and one of the author's most enduring thrillers. Basis for the classic 1950 movie starring Erroll Flynn and Dean Stockwell. An early spy novel which undoubtedly influenced Ian Fleming and a whole generation of spy writers; the British spy Harold 'Kim' Philby was so nicknamed by his father after elements from this text.
