About this Item

The volume is a collected edition containing many of Clemens' most popular works, Parts I and II consist of The Innocents Abroad and The New Pilgrim's Progress. Part III constitutes an extensive selection of Twain's "Humorous Stories and Sketches" including "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." Nicely bound in half leather with the leather joints archivally reinforced many years ago. Back hinge cracked but book still tight in bindin owing to the archival reinforcement. Frontispiece illustration portrait of Twain is tissue protected. Many quaint illustrations throughout. Name of original owner in old pen on front flyleaf is dated 1874. Spine leather nice, with five raised bands. Title gilt over brown morocco compartment. Leather cover tips very worn but overall this is still an attractive book. Sporadic minor soiling internally. A very decent copy of a rather scarce Twain item. Size: Octavo, 503pp. Bookseller Inventory # 2866
