Kim by Rudyard Kipling
ILLUSTRATED HARDCOVER EDITION  DOUBLEDAY
Beautiful refurbished ex-library. Dust Jacket is excellent but is attached to book. Stamp on one of the title pages and some sticker residue on lining to front cover. Pages are still clean, white and excellent. Perfect reading copy of this classic novel.
Kimball O’Hara grows up an orphan in the walled city of Lahore, India. Deeply devoted to an old Tibetan lama but involved in a secret mission for the British, Kim struggles to weave the strands of his life into a single pattern. Charged with action and suspense, yet profoundly spiritual, Kim vividly expresses the sounds and smells, colors and characters, opulence and squalor of complex, contradictory India under British rule.
