Spine in six compartments of raised bands and gilt floral motifs. Gilt text in compartments two & three. Top edges gilt. Edges are uncut. Marbled end-papers. Volumes 32- 33 an 34 have considerable wear on the boards with some areas completely worn off.The Outward Bound edition was published in installments between 1897 until the end of Kipling?s life in 1936. The complete set eventually included 36 volumes. However variations appeared in the printing over the years. Text published in two volumes in earlier printings was combined into single volumes to save money on the part of the publishers. The published letters of Rudyard Kipling (2004) indicate that Kipling often disapproved of the cost-saving measures of Scribner's, preferring that later printings kept the same numeration of the volumes as the earlier ones. Each volume has a frontispiece with a tissue guard. Illustrative plates, portraits and maps throughout. This handsome set belonged to Richard Hugh Schaddelee, an accomplished yachtsman from Grand Rapids, Michigan. A copy of the February 4, 1957 Sports Illustrated with his picture on the cover is included. Also includes is a letter dated November 29, 1937 addressed to Mr. Schaddelee from Charles Scribner's Sons concerning the extremely scarce final three last volumes (34, 35 and 36) of this set. The Limited Printing notice from the Publisher is also included. A rare find! Full refund if not satisfied.
