'Twain, Mark' [Samuel L. Clemens]. THE STOLEN WHITE ELEPHANT. London: Chatto & Windus, 1882. First Edition, First Issue (on all counts as per both Johnson and BAL). A NEAR FINE copy in original publisher's red cloth, decorated in black and gilt. Spine a little faded as always, a bit of abrasion to the upper cover near the spine gutter, a small wax stain at one corner of the spine tip, a little foxing to the edges and prelims. Yet despite all small faults, this is a remarkably fresh and tight copy of a book often found shaken or loose in its case. Very nice, bright example of this true first edition which both precedes the U.S. first edition and is far harder to find in collector's condition. Bookseller Inventory #
