Kipling's controversial poem, The White Man's Burden, was meant as a warning against the rise of American imperialism in the wake of the Spanish American War. The poem was first published in a McClure's newspaper on 10 February 1899 and was immediately adopted by various group for political agendas. F.N. Doubleday's first publishing venture was the Doubleday & McClure Company, founded in 1897, and much of the early success of the company had to do with Kipling. According to F.N. Doubleday's note, this special volume was printed in in January 1899 while that relationship was still in its formative phase.
