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
