About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar for 1894 by Twain, Mark (Samuel Clemens).

Description:

16pp. Mark Twain's smallest first edition, form C (no priority). Issued as an advertisement for The Century Magazine, which was running "Pudd'nhead Wilson" in serial form. The calendar may have been produced from multiple, not duplicate, settings, and it is possible that all three forms were issued simultaneously. Each month shows a droll paragraph from Mark Twain, such as the one that ends: "put all your eggs in one basket and--watch that basket." Contains an illustration of "Thumb Prints" and a long quotation in which Pudd'nhead discusses the new method of detecting by means of fingerprints. The typesetting is intentionally and comically incompetent, with letters upside down. A delightful, very rare, and fragile Twain item. 1/8 inch tear to cover, still unusually fine in printed yellow wrappers. (BAL 3439). (3 by 2 1/2; 76x60mm). Bookseller Inventory #
