ANSWER: Mowgli the Jungle Boy was indeed published with two different covers. The original cover is by William Bartlett who also drew the interior artwork. It was later reissued with the same interiors but a new cover by H. B. Vestal. These thumbnails link to bigger versions.

Hello, I have been trying to buy the complete series of Jungle Book on Video, by complete series I mean the NIPPON series that once aired on television. I cant give too much info about it but I really would like to complete the set. Could you possibly give me some links to places I can buy them in pounds? I can find many links to buy them in dollars but being English I dont have any dollars!

Mrs. (Flora Beal) Shelton , a missionary in Batang, brought out, in the 1920s, a geographical encyclopedia in the Tibetan language, printed at the Baptist Mission Press in Calcutta . According to older Tibetans who had come across this amazing book, it not only gave accounts and pictures of Eskimos and igloos, pygmies from “Darkest Africa” and so on, but even featured detailed descriptions of places in Tibet with photographs of the Potala and the great monasteries of Derge and Lithang. Mrs. Shelton also published a collection of fairy tales she had translated, titled, appropriately enough, Lhamoe Namthar (“goddess stories). This book also included the story of “Rikki Tikki Tavi” from Kipling's Jungle Book . Mrs. Shelton wrote to Kipling, then living in Brattleboro , Vermont , for permission to reprint the story. In the preface to the first edition (1922), Mrs. Shelton wrote: “To the boys and girls of Tibet this little book of stories lovingly given with the hope that they may enjoy them as much as my own two little girls, Doris and Dorothy have done.” This book was later re-printed by the Tibet Mirror Press and many hundreds of free copies distributed by Gergan Tharchin to children at the Tibetan Refugee School in Kalimpong, on the Christmas Eve of 1964, if I recall the year correctly.
