8.5" x 11" edition (21.59 x 27.94 cm) with small type (9-point) and three column format on cream paper.
This unabridged edition contains all three books of the original edition.
Mark Twain is better known for his bad boy stories Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Joan of Arc, his last completed novel, is a dream of his childhood, a work of his artistic maturity and, in many ways, a counterpoint to his previous works.
The novel was first published in Harper's Magazine under the real name of Mark Twain, Samuel Langhorne Clemens. The pseudonymous author's name, Sieur Louis de Conte, has the same initials as Clemens (SLC), putting the author in the role of Joan’s page and secretary. His descriptions of Joan are based on his daughter, Susy, and the novel is dedicated to his wife, Olivia. In short, Joan of Arc has less of the sarcastic Twain and more of the loving Clemens.
I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others; twelve years of preparation, and two years of writing. - Mark Twain
