Item Description: N.Y.: The Limited editions Club, 1949., 1949. #223 of a limited edition of 1500 copies, signed by the illustrator. Intro. by Carl Van Doren, illus. by Honore Guilbeau. 4to; 275 pp. Bound in gold colored foil with cloth spine, slight rubbing to foil, still a near fine copy, internally fine. Slipcase is also covered in the same foil and while it doesn't show mauch wear it does has a lot of markings. I think that while the case was not waterstained it may have been in damp condition and the slipcase shows the effect. It looks like it may have been stuck to books on both sides which pulled off small patches of foil. Case is only good with also a faded spine. Bookseller Inventory # 02741B

Item Description: NY Male Teacher's Association of New York 1901, 1901. 24mo. booklet, signed by Mark Twain in pencil on the front cover. The booklet is a program for the monthly dinner meeting of the Male Teacher’s Association of New York that occurred on March 16th, 1901, most notable for the fact that Mark Twain was one of the principal speakers. The theme of the evening was training students to be good citizens, and Twain’s speech addressed his own interpretation of patriotism. In an April 7, 1901 New York Times article covering the event, it is reported that Twain said, "I would teach patriotism in the schools, and teach it this way: I would throw out the old maxim, ‘My country, right or wrong,’ &c., instead I would say, ‘My country when she is right.’" He continued on, saying, "I would not take my patriotism from my neighbor or from Congress. I should teach the children in the schools that there are certain ideals, and one of them is that all men are created free and equal." The first page of the booklet is a roster of the association’s officers and members of the group’s glee club, and the second page is the menu for the evening. The third page lists the seven speakers for the evening, including Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain), and the final page lists the Supper Committee members. Laid in is a mimeographed sheet with the club’s annual budget statement. The text is printed in blue, and the booklet is in printed cream wrappers and tied with a blue ribbon laced through the spine. A few spots of soiling and some faint toning to the covers, ribbon shows some wear, else near fine. Bookseller Inventory # 24724

Item Description: 1869. [inscribed by Twain to Stoddard] or The New Pilgrims' Progress. With Two Hundred and Thirty-Four Illustrations. Hartford, Conn.: American Publishing Company, 1876. Original very dark brown cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition, later printing, of Mark Twain's second book (preceded only by THE CELEBRATED JUMPING FROG OF CALAVERAS COUNTY). This is Twain's account, filled with shrewd observation and humor, of his steamship journey to Europe and the Levant -- originally in the form of letters to American newspapers. It proved to be Twain's first commercial success; as with most books produced by The American Publishing Company, copies were sold on a subscription basis, i.e. door-to-door by salesmen, rather than through bookshops.~The first edition was published in 1869; this is a later printing from those plates, published in 1876. Condition is bright and near-fine (a hint of wear at the ends of the joints, front endpaper slightly cracked, small inkstain on the bottom edge, 1924 catalogue description of this copy tipped in). McBride pp 6-7; Blanck 3316. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.~The front free endpaper is inscribed and signed by Twain, "To Chas Warren Stoddard | from his friend | Mark Twain | Hartford Oct. 1877." Stoddard (1843-1909) was an American writer who grew up on the East Coast but who settled in San Francisco in 1859 (and thus was there when Twain arrived there). Like Twain, Stoddard was a world traveler; beginning in 1873 he had a five-year world tour (including the time of this inscription) as a correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, and beginning in 1880 he became co-editor (with Bret Harte and Ina Coolbrith -- together known as the "Golden Gate Trinity") of the Overland Monthly -- which in 1870 had published some of Twain's earliest writings.~Provenance: bookplate of William Harris Arnold (1854-1923), the bibliophile who authored VENTURES IN BOOK COLLECTING (1924).

Item Description: (Hartford) N.p. 1889, 1889. (3)pp., rectos only. Dated July 15, 1889, from Clemens to his daughter, Clara, signed "Papa," about a train disaster in Virginia. An update about the wreck arrived in a letter while Clemens was dining with his friend, Charles Dudley Warner, a fellow American writer. Clemens’s vivid description of the event brings alive the immediacy of the disaster. He writes, ". that late accident still grows & grows. There had been a washout; several hundred feet of the road were gone; two hours after midnight that sleeping-car train dashed in to that vacant space in a pouring rain, & mingled its wreckage with the chaos of rocks, weeds, rails & freshet-rubbish contributed by the washout; the crushed passengers woke up & wailed out in that rainy thick darkness; then the cheerful car-stove came to their help; & gave them light, & burnt them up." He goes on to describe how a young girl (Miss Patty Carrington) was killed in the fire, and how the girl’s adoptive mother, Mrs. Judge Thompson, who survived the crash, lost all of her clothing and baggage containing two centuries-worth of family heirlooms as well. The accident to which he refers happened on July 2, 1889, on the Norfolk & Western Railroad line near Thaxton, VA. It was the most serious accident in the railroad’s history: seventeen people were killed and many more were injured. Clemens closes the letter on a lighter note, describing a piece by Beethoven performed by his neice: "the one where, all along & all along, half a dozen of the bass notes keep rolling back down stairs a little way — only to the first landing; & get up again & roll down again & are the darling of the piece & the charm of it." He signs the letter, "Goodbye dear heart — write me again. Papa. P.S. I don’t mean this letter as an answer to your letter, it is merely a response." With the original envelope addressed to Clara in Elmira, NY, where Clemens and his family kept a summer home. A dramatic and historical letter that captures Clemens’s instinct for storytelling. Fine.

Item Description: New York: Harper, 1949, 1949. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Original black cloth, dust jacket. Slipcase. A fine copy. First edition of Samuel Clemens’s wonderful love letters to his wife Livy, signed by the author both “S. L. Clemens” and “Mark Twain” on the tipped-in limitation sheet. This is one of 155 numbered copies of the deluxe limited edition. The leaf also bears the notice, “these signatures of Mark Twain have been in the possession of Harper & Brothers for fifty years. There are no more.” These letters span the years from the couple’s initial courtship in 1868 through Livy’s death in 1904. In his long first letter to Livy, who had rebuffed him, Clemens writes in small part, “I do not regret that I have loved you, still love & shall always love you. I accept the situation, uncomplainingly, hard as it is. Of old I am acquaint- ed with grief, disaster & disappointment, & have borne these troubles as became a man. So, also, shall I bear this last & bitterest, even though it break my heart. I would not dishonor this worthiest love that has yet been born within me by any puerile thought, or word, or deed. It is better to have loved and lost you than that my life should have remained forever the blank it was before ”. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12592135014
