Item Description: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929., 1929. The Stormfield EditionTWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes. Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets with printed paper labels on the spine.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before it's publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267). Bookseller Inventory # 01682

Item Description: Webster and Co., 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Meets the criteria for a first printing via recent scholarship. The book has the following points, which are the only ones necessary to designate it as a first printing: erroneous listing on page 13 for the plate at page 88 [later corrected to page 87], the misprint on page 57, line 23, "with the was" [later corrected to "with the saw"] page [9], the Contents page, the word "decided" [later corrected to "decides"]. No other points are necessary to determine whether a copy is a first printing, as these were the only to change between printings one and two. For a full discussion, see Mac Donnell in Firsts, 1998--"Huckleberry Finn among the Issue-Mongers." This book has the second 5 present on 155 in a slightly larger, different font. It has the straight fly on the plate on 283. Front portrait has the Heliotype printing co, without. Page 143 is missing the letter L. after Co. Condition: See pictures. Hinges and binding exceptionally tight. The gilt and illustrations are nicely preserved, though with some fading most notably on the spine. The front cover illustrations are nicely preserved and very presentable. Illustrated by Kemble throughout; all illustrations accounted for. Text tanned and with minor imperfections as usual and expected. Pen signatures on front end paper and flyleaf. Else free and clear. There are some light creases and a couple of closed tears throughout, one such treated with Japanese tissue. Re-cased with discrete repairs to the extremities and cloth restored on the spine ends. Overall, a nice copy of this scarce classic which will last for many years. Questions and offers welcome. To anyone interested in collecting Twain books, I can provide a link to an excellent introductory article. Please see my other Twain listings. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-13480416441

Item Description: 1885. (Tom Sawyer's Comrade.) With One Hundred and Seventy-Four Illustrations. New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition of Twain's classic tale of boyhood in mid-19th Century America. HUCK FINN has quite a number of issue points, and in some instances bibliographers disagree on priority; what is generally agreed-upon today, however, is that there are three important issue points (with actual changes of text), plus numerous unimportant issue points (due to variant preliminary leaves supplied from different sources, or due to type-slippage during the print run). This copy has all three "important" issue points in their first state: (1) p. [9]: ".Huck Decided to Leave." is listed as part of the heading for Chapter VI (later changed to "Decides"); (2) p. [13]: "Him and another Man" is wrongly listed as at page 88 (later corrected to page 87); (3) p. 57: ".with the was.", later corrected to ".with the saw.".~For those who care what the unimportant issue points are, they are: (1) frontispiece portrait: "Heliotype," with scarf visible; (2) title page: a cancel, with copyright dated 1884 on the verso; (3) p. 143: "Col." at upper right corner of plate lacks the "l." (type slippage); (4) p. 155: final "5" of page number in a different font (type slippage and replacement); (5) p. 161: signature mark "11" missing; (6) p. 283: corrected plate bound in, as usual.~As for condition, this is an attractive, near-fine copy. There is only the slightest of wear at the binding extremities, and the rear endpaper is partly cracked, but the cover design remains bright and sharp and, most important, NO restoration has been performed on this book.

Item Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York; 1882 and 1884. Octavo. Two volumes in original plum cloth (volumes I and II), brown coated endpapers; wear to extremities, but very good overall; half blue morocco clamshell. SIGNED in both volumes by Livy: "Olivia L. Clemens/1882/Hartford". Both are signed in the year of publication. Mark Twain delighted in criticizing and correcting errors in the writings of other authors; apparently, so did Livy. She has corrected an awkward sentence on page 257, in volume III. And she has underlined the words "and is a colossus of gossamer". (page 76, volume IV). Both volumes have the booksellers ticket on the rear pastedown: (Brown & Gross Booksellers Hartford CT). [TOGETHER WITH] Two volumes in original plum cloth (volumes III and IV), brown coated endpapers; wear to extremities, rear inner hinge just starting on volume 3, but very good overall; half orange morocco slipcase. SIGNED in both volumes by Mark Twain, for his wife, Livy: "Livy L. Clemens/1885". Some passages are marked in pencil, including the sentence "Fear nothing but fear". (page 48, volume II). The front pastedowns have Clara Clemens shelf markings and also the 1951 auction markings. What a great association! Both Mark Twain and his wife Livy, loved Thomas Carlyle and his work. Evidence of this may be found in another book from Twain's library, by Moncure D. Conway, entitled Autobiography: Memories and Experiences. It was sold at Sotheby's on June 19, 2003 (the Karanovich copy). Twain wrote in the margin, next to a passage about the marriage of Thomas and Jane Carlyle: "It is as if he (Carlyle) were speaking of Livy, & of me." (volume 2, p. 108).

Item Description: New York, Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885., 1885. First Edition, earliest state of the cloth issue, now finely rebound in full green morocco, with the original cloth covers preserved at rear. Large octavo, pp366. Illustrated throughout. Internally clean save for the occasional thumbmark, portrait is creased with an old (discreet) repair to rear. Binding features raised bands to spine with gilt titles and decoration, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With the following issue points confirming this as one of the initial cloth copies: p.13: the illustration captioned "Him and another Man" is listed, wrongly, as at p.88; p.57: the eleventh line from the bottom reads: ".with the was."; p.155: with the final five lacking; p.161: lacks the signature mark 11 at the bottom of the page. In addition, the portrait frontispiece has the tablecloth, or scarf, clearly visible. The contentious 'bulging fly' plate (p.283) was only included in publisher's leather copies and is therefore not pertinent to cloth copies. A fine copy of a rare printing. Blanck [3415].
