I picked this book up just because it has “Winkie”, one type of Citizen of Oz, in the title. It’s actually a collection of short stories by Kipling. 1st published in 1895, this is a later, undated edition (1940’s?) From the Kipling Society:

“Wee Willie Winkie is the six-year-old son of the Colonel, and much loved by all in the regiment. He is subject to military discipline, but breaks bounds on his pony to follow a young woman who is riding – very rashly – into tribal territory. They are captured by the tribesmen but Wee Willie Winkie sends back his pony for help, and behaves with great bravery until they are rescued. He is ‘wee’ no longer.”

With several other stories which hopefully are a little better. In very good condition, light soiling to cover and type with light age toning, but overall quite clean.
