The Jungle Books

By Rudyard Kipling; W. W. Robson | Go to book overview
Save to active project

CONSIDERABLE use has been made in the compilation of these Notes of James McG. Stewart, Rudyard Kipling: A Bibliographical Catalogue ed. A. W. Yeats, Toronto, 1959, and of The Readers' Guide to Rudyard Kipling's Works, ed. R. E. Harbord, to both of whom I express my gratitude. I should also like to thank Dr J. L. Brockington, Department of Sanskrit, University of Edinburgh, for help with a note on 'The Miracle of Purun Bhagat', and Professor S. S. Prawer, of Oxford University, for help with a note on 'In the Rukh'.Abbreviations:'(K)' indicates that the note is taken from 'Author's Notes on the Names in the Jungle Books', first published in volume 12 of the Sussex Edition ( 1937).' Sterndale' refers to Robert Armitage Sterndale Seeonee, or Camp Life on the Satpura Range, 1st edn London, 1877; 2nd edn Calcutta, 1887.

For famine in India caused by drought, cf. K's story 'William the Conqueror' ( 1895), collected in The Day's Work ( 1898).
