The Barrack-Room Ballads are a series of songs and poems by Rudyard Kipling, dealing with the late-Victorian British Army and mostly written in a vernacular dialect. The series contains some of Kipling's most well-known work, including the poems "Gunga Din", "Tommy", "Mandalay", and "Danny Deever", helping consolidate his early fame as a poet. The first poems were published in the Scots Observer in the first half of 1890, and collected in Barrack-Room Ballads and Other Verses in 1892. (Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrack-Room_Ballads) "The variety of form which Kipling manages to devise for his ballads is remarkable: each is distinct, and perfectly fitted to the content and the mood which the poem has to convey." (T. S. Eliot) Condition: Very good. The boards and spine have some rubbing. Minor stains to small sections of the boards. Small bumps to corners of the boards. Light sunning to the spine. Light browning to the front and rear free endpapers. A few very small stains to some pages, not affecting the text. Overall a well bound copy.
