This is The New Illustrated Just So Stories volume. All twelve immortal tales with 72 pictures in full cover are included in this book. "This, O Best Beloved, is another story of the High and Far-Off Times. . . When the world was so new and all. . ." With these words of simple magic Kipling, master story-teller, leads us away into the enchanted long ago when things were not as they are now. These tales humorously and vividly recount how the camel got his hump, how the leopard got his spots and how the armadillo came to be. This beautiful book has wear at the spine ends and a split about 2" long in the gutter. Corners have light to moderate wear with shelfwear to the top, more than at the bottom. The jacket has extreme wear on the spine, missing pieces, and heavy wear to the corners with a 1" piece missing from the top front corner. Many chips and tiny tears are located at the bottom, with creases at the top. The book is pictorial with the same illustrations as the jacket. ; Color Illustrations; 4to 10" - 12" tall; 85 pages
