Twenty Poems - Rudyard Kipling

1918 - Methuen & Co. Ltd., London - First Edition
If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating, and yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise......
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, and - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

A finely bound first edition of Kipling’s ‘
Twenty Poems’, featuring some of his most celebrated poem, including ‘If’ and ‘Gunga Din’.
