1948. Really nice hardback volumes of the Jungle books by Rudyard Kipling with fantastic color and Black and White illustrations by Aldren Watson. Dust jackets are identical and feature color illustration of Mowgli on the back of an Elephant. Featured, among others, are: “Mowgli’s brothers, Kaa’s Hunting”, “How fear came” and “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”. Nice tight volumes with VG dust jackets for less than normal edge wear and tear. Kipling pictured on the back of the jackets.
