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

I hope you will sell a pile of Howells's book when it comes out-- & Harte's. The effect will be good. Mrs. Moulton is still stringing out her summer at Pomfret, Conn.

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

Item Description: Hartford, ca. 1875, 1875. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. This delightful photograph shows Clemens’s young daughters with the author’s ghostly image in the background. On the verso Clemens has written, “Miss Alice. See vague portrait of the father in right hand corner. I was behind the curtain holding the children’s heads & not purposing to be part of the group. S. L. Clemens.” The photograph is also inscribed and dated 1875 by Livy Clemens. [with:] Kingsbury, Alice. Autograph manuscript reminiscence of Samuel L. Clemens. No date. Two pages. Kingsbury describes her visits with her daughter Mary to the Clemens house in Hartford and comments on subsequent meetings. She gives her impressions about Clemens’s character, his relationship with Livy, and his writing habits. [with:] Clemens, Samuel L. Autograph letter signed to Miss Kingsbury. Hartford, October12,1890.Two pages. In this delightful letter, written fifteen years after he gave Miss Kingsbury the photograph of his daughters, Clemens charmingly declines an invitation to lecture, writing in part,“I reformed six years ago & have not infected the platform since. I shouldn’t know how to read or speak now.” The author’s investing calamities of the 1890s were soon to force his return to the lecture circuit. He goes on to write that “Susy and Clara were very little folk when you knew them. And now Susy’s in college! It takes my breath away to think of it—and this trying to get used to it in the short space of a week I find wholly impossible.” Provenance: Clemens family friend Alice Kingsbury, with her signature dated 1890 and her subsequent gift inscription dated 1931. The photograph is inscribed to Miss Kingsbury and the letter is addressed to her. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12590669572
