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: Male Teacher's Association of New York, NY, 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: New York, 1908. Four pages, in ink, on folded quarto sheet of simple letterhead (21 Fifth Avenue), ca. 275 words, with envelope addressed in his hand, with signed ("S. L. Clemens") return address. A warm and loving letter from Clemens to his youngest daughter, Jean (1880 - 1909), then at Eastern Point in Gloucester, Mass, during one of the extended separations from her family due to her need for special care for her epilepsy: "Your beautiful letter has come, Jean dear, & I draw a deep breath of relief - you like the place & my anxieties have vanished away! I had a growing fear - founded on nothing - that you would feel the other way about it. I am unspeakably glad that it pleases you, & now I hope & believe you will have a happy summer. By your description, it is a place that would delight the heart of any one that has the seeing eye for the graciousness of the woods & fields & rocks & their wild inhabitants & for the majestic ocean. You can live out of doors there. You were virtually in prison at Greenwich, & would still have been in prison if you had occupied the whole forlorn & uninspiring town ." He continues at length about his own activities, assuring her not to ". trouble about me! I am a happy & vigorous loafer." He recounts attendance at speeches and political banquets, games of billiards and the like, then turns to family matters, detailing efforts by Clara and the house staff to keep distresses from him "unless it is something I could remedy . They know I desire this; for I am taking my holiday, now after 60 years of work & struggle & worry & vexation . But whenever there is anything that depends upon me & my help, I want to know all about it." He closes: "With ever & ever & ever so much love, dear child, Father." Four pages, in ink, on folded quarto sheet of simple letterhead (21 Fifth Avenue), ca. 275 words, with envelope addressed in his hand, with signed ("S. L. Clemens") return address.

Item Description: Elmira, New York, 1876. 4 pp pen and ink on two 8vo sheets. A warm and personal letter to the Clemens' close friend Dr. John Brown, imploring him to visit their summer idyll. "I wish you were here to spend the summer with us. We are perched on a hill-top that overlooks a little world of green valleys, shining rivers, sumptuous forests and billowy uplands veiled in the haze of distance. We have no neighbors. It is the quietest of all the quiet places, and we are hermits that eschew caves and live in the sun. Doctor, if you'd only come!" Clemens hands the letter off to his wife, who, in a short signed postscript, echoes her husband's sentiments. Clemens began work on HUCKLEBERRY FINN, following the publication of TOM SAWYER, during the summer of 1876. Dr. Brown (1810-1882) was the author of the cherished dog story, RAB AND HIS FRIENDS, as well as several volumes of medical essays. Paine, Letters of Mark Twain, I, p. 280 Creased from prior folds, light browning at margins. Mounted and framed with photograph, displaying pp. 1 & 3 of letter 4 pp pen and ink on two 8vo sheets.
