Rewards and Fairies - containing If - Rudyard Kipling, Frank Craig (illustrator)

1910 - Macmillan and Co., London - First Edition
‘If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too.....
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, and – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!’

A bright and superior first edition, the first appearance of Kipling’s beloved poem, ‘
If’, together with a charming collection of (occasionally fantastical and supernatural) stories and verse. Many are set in the surroundings of Kipling’s Sussex home, and perfectly capture the myth and mystery of the English countryside. Includes the tales ‘The Marklake Witches’ and ‘Simple Simon’.

With four full page black and white illustrations by Frank Craig.
