Actually 29 of the original series of 39 'Plain Tales' were included in the collection; three others had appeared in the Gazette but had not formed part of the original series; and eight were now printed for the first time. Of the original series of 39, it seems that six were possibly not (or not wholly) by Kipling: on the problems of authenticity raised by his early work, see p. 64. The volume was dedicated 'To the wittiest woman in India', and the dedicatee has been convincingly identified as Mrs Burton, wife of Major F.

Such passages should be read in the light of the fact that Plain Tales from the Hills appeared in the same year as Barrie's Auld Licht Idylls, Morris's A Dream ofJohn Ball, QuillerCouch's Troy Town, and Stevenson's Black Arrow. The author of this collection deserves the same tribute that Wordsworth paid to Chatterton when he called him 'the marvellous boy'. The order of the previously published stories as they appear in this volume does not follow that of original publication: Kipling presumably had some other principle than chronology in mind.
