PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS. Rudyard Kipling. PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS.
London: Macmillan and Co. 1893. Later printing of the UK edition (the first was in 1890) from a Macmillan Uniform Edition of his works sent by Kipling to Captain (later Rear-Admiral) Robley Dunglison Evans (1846-1912). PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED on title page above the title to Evans, "To the Captain of the 'Indiana' from the author / June 96:" and SIGNED "Rudyard Kipling" above his scored-through printed name. According to Evans' 1901 autobiography, A SAILOR'S LOG, (two copies of which are included), "While refitting in New York, Mr. Rudyard Kipling breakfasted on board with me . . . . Some weeks afterward he was good enough to send me a set of his books. On the title-page of PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS, facing a beautiful picture of Sergeant [sic] Mulvaney, done by my dear friend R. F. Zogbaum, he had written the following graceful lines. . . ." The graceful lines he refers to are those of an UNTITLED HOLOGRAPHIC POEM Kipling transcribed and signed on the page opposite the title page. The poem herein is generally unknown as it was never titled or collected by Kipling [Richards, note to E1-65]. (It appeared in Evans' own book, in one other with a few minor transcription mistakes, and also a few times in journals all around the turn of the last century.) The "beautiful picture" Evans refers to is of the character "Private Mulvaney," who makes his first appearance herein. Zogbaum's 4 x 6" gouache painting of Mulvaney is INSCRIBED BY ZOGBAUM, "To Capt R.D. Evans USN / R F Zogbaum / June '96" and pasted to the copyright page with, presumably in Zogbaum's hand, "'Tis the trut' I'm tellin' you" written beneath. KIPLING'S POEM, in four quatrains, begins with "Zogbaum draws with a pencil,/ And I do things with a pen;/ And you sit up in a conning tower/ Bossing eight hundred men." And ends with "'To him that hath shall be given,'/ And that's why these books are sent/ To the man who has lived more stories/ Than Zogbaum or I couLd invent!" Small octavo, blue-cloth boards stamped in gilt and black on front and in gilt on spine. Evans' bookplate on pastedown. Expertly recased with original spine laid down, fine thus. Housed in lambs-wool lined, black cloth-covered clamshell case lettered in gilt on spine. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND WITH HOLOGRAPH POEM SIGNED BY KIPLING REFERRING TO HIMSELF, THE RECIPIENT AND R.F. ZOGBAUM, WHOSE ORIGINAL, INSCRIBED GOUACHE PAINTING OF KIPLING CHARACTER PRIVATE MULVANEY IS AFFIXED TO THE COPYRIGHT PAGE.

THE VAMPIRE. Rudyard Kipling. THE VAMPIRE.
Boston: Privately Printed, 1898. First Boston edition [Richards E1-23]. An unauthorized pamphlet featuring a poem written by Kipling to garner publicity for what would surely have been considered, at the time, a mildly pornographic painting by Philip Burne-Jones (a cousin of Kipling's) entitled "The Vampire," which was scheduled to go on display in London in April 1897. The poem became the inspiration for the 1909 Broadway play, "A Fool There Was," and 1915 film with the same title, starring Theda Bara as "the Vampire." Small, 16mo, handsewn, tan paperwraps with red vignette of bats flying under a crescent moon on front. Tipped-in frontispiece reproduction of Burne-Jones's painting, "The Vampire." Name inside front cover, few tiny, inconspicuous holes to spine fold, otherwise near fine. Quite scarce. UNAUTHORIZED PAMPHLET ILLUSTRATED WITH A MILDLY PORNOGRAPHIC PAINTING BY KIPLING'S COUSIN.
