Title: The Seven Seas Edition Of The Works of Rudyard Kipling
Author: Rudyard Kipling - Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. Kipling received the 1907 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old.

Kipling is best known for his works of fiction, including "The Jungle Book", many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888), and his poems, including "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The White Man's Burden" (1899) and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major "innovator in the art of the short story" and his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature. (Courtesy Wikipedia.)

"The Philosophy of andy Warhol is an incredible potpourri: sublimely irreverent, unfailingly funny - above all, true. Andy pokes and prowls around all the sacred cows of American life (work, success, fame, love, beauty) with such seriousness that they beg to be laughed at; he shakes the fust out of platitudes and lets them flap in the open air. At the same time, spinning unique theories about aspects of life normally left unexplored, he reveals the qualities that have made him one of the most powerful forces in shaping our culture."

Author: Tristram J. Ellis - Tristram James Ellis was an English artist who was known for his paintings of the Middle East and eastern Mediterranean. After university, Ellis completed a pupilage under the railway engineer Sir John Fowler and became a partner in a firm of engineers. After several years, Ellis decided that his calling lay in art. As he had sufficient means to support himself, he abandoned engineering and devoted his time to oil painting. (Courtesy Wikipedia).

These volumes are each adorned with a frontispiece and several full-page and chapter headpiece illustrations from copper engraving plates by the author/artist. There are a signed tipped-in letter on the front endpaper in Vol. I and bookplates on each front pastedown which identify the provenance of the volumes as from “Phillips Brooks to the Trinity Church in the City of Boston.” Phillips Brooks (December 13, 1835 – January 23, 1893) was an American Episcopal clergyman and author, long the Rector of Boston's Trinity Church and briefly Bishop of Massachusetts, and particularly remembered as lyricist of the Christmas hymn, "O Little Town of Bethlehem". In the Episcopal liturgical calendar he is remembered on January 23.

In 1878 the author spent six months in Cyprus, then under British occupation, where he contracted a fever. Despite this he returned to London with 50–60 watercolor sketches that were all sold to a dealer after their exhibition in Bond Street in April 1879. This success encouraged him to plan a more ambitious trip, and so on 1 October 1879 he boarded a steamship for Alexandria with the aim of visiting Syria, Asia Minor and Mesopotamia. Ellis succeeded in traveling from the Syrian coast, overland to Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey and then by raft down the Tigris to Mosul and Baghdad in Iraq. From Baghdad, Ellis traveled overland to Palmyra and Damascus in Syria and then to Beirut, Lebanon. After his return, he showed about 90 sketches from his travels, and sold them immediately. Ellis also wrote this two-volume illustrated account of his trip, which was published in 1881. (Courtesy Wikipedia).

Like his friend Teddy Roosevelt, Wister was fascinated with the culture, lore and terrain of the region. On an 1893 visit to Yellowstone, Wister met the western artist Frederic Remington; who remained a lifelong friend. When he started writing, he naturally inclined towards fiction set on the western frontier.
