QUARTETTE, The Christmas Annual of the Civil & Military Gazette, 1885. Rudyard Kipling, Alice and Beatrice Kipling, John Lockwood. QUARTETTE, The Christmas Annual of the Civil & Military Gazette, 1885.
Lahore: The "Civil and Military Gazette" Press, 1885. First edition. "By Four Anglo-Indian Writers" -- i.e., Rudyard Kipling; his parents, John and Alice; and his sister, Beatrice. According to Kipling, in the winter cold "we four made up a Christmas annual called QUARTETTE, which pleased us a good deal and attracted a certain amount of attention" (Something of Myself, 1937). One of Kipling's earliest publications, produced when he was just 20 years old. Of the sixteen prose and verse pieces included herein, Kipling contributes five poems and three stories. Only two of the stories, "The Phantom 'Rickshaw" and "The Unlimited 'Draw' of 'Tick' Boileau," were later collected elsewhere; the rest were never reprinted. As his third work was only issued in an edition of one copy, this is actually Kipling's third obtainable book. In original paperwraps with small hole in rear blank, two small holes in margins of rear cover filled in, and bottom of front cover just beginning to separate. Still, nearly fine. Housed in custom cloth and paper chemise and full red leather, double top-loading slipcase lettered in gilt on spine. Marbled paper covered interior section of case worn on open edge and outer casing a little rubbed. Rare in original wraps. Richards A4. KIPLING FAMILY "ANNUAL" WITH MATERIAL NOT APPEARING ELSEWHERE.
