About this Item

First edition. With photographic frontispieces of Twain and Howells, and photographs of Twain's home at Hartford and at Stormfield as well as a number of others. 8vo, full sage-green cloth with formal gilt and red decorative lettering and designs on the spine and upper cover. (viii), 187 pp. A very clean, very fine, bright copy, notations by hand through the first part of the book. Light evidence of removed plate to front pastedown. FIRST EDITION. "Clemens (as I must call him instead of Mark Twain, which seemed always somehow to mask him from my personal sense).was a youth to the end of his days, the heart of a boy with the head of a sage; the heart of a good boy, or a bad boy, but always a wilful boy, and wilfulest to show himself out at every time for just the boy he was." Twain and Howells were friends for forty-four years, and advisors to one another all the long. This is a wonderful, anecdotal critique of Twain by the man who humbly describes himself as the man "mo[st] wholly in literature.". Bookseller Inventory # 23233
