Rudyard Kiplings—best known for his collection of short stories The Jungle Book—was a prolific poet, and Barrack Room Ballads, which contains many of Kipling's best poems, is my favorite collection of his work.
Dealing with the British Army's late-Victorian era which immediately precedes World War I, the motifs and writings were hugely influential throughout World War I, World War II, and the end of colonialism.
Among its many included works are Tommy, Mandalay, and Danny Deever.
This edition was published by Grosset & Dunlap and Cameo Classics in 1936.
The book is in wonderful condition, with a tight binding and hinges. Its is unmarked except for a black top edge.
