Kipling, Twain, Hawthorne, and London



[click to enlarge]


The set of ten are from the 1933 Orsamus Turner Harris “Punjab Edition” of Rudyard Kipling’s works, published in New York by Standard Book Company. Each book was a dollar.

The five Reader’s Digest editions are from the mid- to late-Eighties and in near perfect condition. Each book was two dollars.


Update:
In the Forum: unexpurgated Twain.

Yes, Crissant, another lucky day!

Thanks, Janice. Each and every volume is dear, and brings back memories of the day and place I bought them.
