KIPLING, RUDYARD,
The Absent-Minded Beggar
. A poem ( famously set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan) . The song was written as part of an appeal by the Daily Mail to raise money for soldiers fighting in the South African War (sometimes known as the Boer War) and their families. The fund was the first such charitable effort for a war. The chorus of the song exhorted its audience to "pass the hat for your credit's sake, and pay- pay- pay!" The patriotic poem and song caused a sensation and was constantly performed throughout the war and beyond. Kipling was offered a knighthood shortly after publication of the poem but declined the honour. Vast numbers of copies of the poem and sheet music were published, and large quantities of merchandise were sold to aid the charity. The "Absent Minded Beggar Fund" raised a total of about GBP 250,000. 1899, 318 x 230 mm. The text is printed in green, portrait of Kipling in sepia on the the front cover = Caton Woodville"s illustrations of "A Gentleman in Khaki",FIRST EDITION. WITH Kipling's speech: Indictment of the government, the famous speech at Tunbridge Wells on May 16th, 1913 also published by the Daily Express, 4 A-4 pages.
