The story of Kim, an English orphan boy in India in the late 1800s. Kim becomes involved in an old Lama's search for a sacred river, and in a British spy ring, playing the "Great Game".
This version has illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling, Rudyard Kipling's father, and an updated imitation of the title page from the 1912 Macmillan pocket edition. The cover and illustrations are 600x800, to display well on Bookeen Cybook, etc.
Illustrations and titlepage have been scanned from the 1912 Macmillan pocket edition, the text is multiple sources, and should include all original accents and italics.
The text in this version is much improved. The Project Gutenberg text has numerous errors which have now been corrected. The quotes, dashes and italics are as in the original editions. The text is based on the final authorised edition - the "Sussex" edition of 1937. The spellings are the British English spellings throughout.
There is a table of contents and a list of illustrations.
An enhanced edition of this text is available on Amazon and (shortly) various ePub resellers, that includes a hyperlinked glossary of Kipling's definitions, and numerous other definitions of foreign or unusual words.
This ePub has been hand-crafted, and also works as source input to Kindlegen.
