 This book measures 51/4" x 71/2", is hard covered and in good to very good condition.  Copyright 1899 by Rudyard Kipling and published by Doubleday in 1916 for Review of Reviews Co. 
The Light That Failed is probably the most important of Kipling's adult novels, in which he makes the clearest statements of his beliefs about art and the purpose of life.
It's a pretty bleak picture he paints, cloaked in finery and delight but at the core full of stoic acceptance of misery, hardship and death. While there is a good deal of this that Kipling probably believed, even a casual examination of his own life suggests that this book is more of a bare-bones explication of the fundamental issues than a fully fleshed out portrait of how an artist ought to live.
