About this Item

Original green cloth with gilt-stamped spine and front cover. Bevelled edges. With gilt-stamped frog in the lower left corner of the front board, and the same image blindstamped on the rear board. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, with unbroken type on pages 21, 66, and 198. The preliminary ad has been excised, but the remaining stub is clearly a different buff color from the surrounding pages, which is known to characterize the leaf. One of 1000 copies of the first printing of Twain's first book. There are a few small rents to the cloth on the front board. The tips of the lower forecorners are worn through, and there is a short split to the surface cloth only at the foot of the front joint. Internally, there is a spot or two of foxing to the first couple of pages, and the front hinge is perhaps just a little tender. A bright, Very Good, and unrestored copy of a title that is usually found rebacked or recased. BAL 3310. Bookseller Inventory # 000123
