About this title

Synopsis:

"This painstaking study goes a long way toward recovering the importance of the illustrations for Mark Twain's books. Having dug long and hard, Professor David recovers many details, establishes some surprising facts, explains gaps and inconsistencies, and offers some ingenious deductions (particularly for 'Roughing It'). Collectors will be grateful also; the illustrations now lay a clear and interesting path into determining the early states of an edition. Even a non-Twainian can enjoy the many illustrations reproduced and will get sensitized to the enveloping subject of nineteenth-century publishing. Twainians will better understand the primary texts covered so far and will look forward hungrily to the next volume."--AMERICAN LITERATURE
