antiquarian books






Since they were written, thousands of copies of RK's works have been published, in many different editions, and there are many fine old copies in antiquarian bookshops. We are providing links to a growing selection of antiquarian bookshops and networks of bookshops which carry Kipling's works and books about him.

If you know of a bookshop or network you would like to recommend, please send us its contact details, including email and - if available - web-site address: (click to email)
