Rewards And Fairies - Rudyard Kipling 1910 - Macmillan and Co., London - First Edition ‘If you can keep your head when all about you are loosing 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 clean first edition of this charming collection of (occasionally fantastical and supernatural) stories and verse, many of them set in the surroundings of Kipling’s Sussex home, and perfectly capturing the myth and mystery of the English countryside. Includes the tales ‘
The Marklake Witches’ and ‘Simple Simon’, together with Kipling’s beloved poem, ‘If’, which made its first appearance in this collection, and was later voted Britain’s favourite poem.

With four full page black and white illustrations by Frank Craig.
  Published 4 October 1910, at 6s; 25,000 copies printed.
