RUDYARD KIPLING(1865 - 1936) English writer and Nobel Prize winner. Among his works are The Jungle Book, Captains Courageous and Kim. Nice content A.L.S., 2pp. 8vo., Burwash, June 6, 1935 to his friend Herbert St. John Mildmay. In part: "...I don't know whether it was my handwriting or your Greek that struck him dumb; but certain it is that I haven't had a word out of the Master since I sent on your verses! I described it as the work of one unknown 'for the better prevention of scandals'...your dog may miss his rabbit. But even a dog doesn't sit down & realize 'Oh Cerberus. I've been barking up the wrong tree half my life'. Does he?...". Very good.
Estimate $ 300-400
