Title: A Yankee in King Arthur's Court
Publisher: New York: Charles L. Webster and Company,
Edition: First Edition.
The first edition of Twain's brilliant story of time travel, the foundation of a new genre of humorous fantasy. A beautiful book, profusely illustrated by Dan Beard, and bound in elaborately decorated olive cloth. This copy is the second state of the first edition (without the superfluous ornament in the caption on page 59). An externally attractive copy, bright and only lightly worn, but the front hinge is cracked and the title page has two-inch tear extending from the gutter. A nice, affordable copy of a profoundly influential book. Bookseller Inventory # 12419
