About this Item

TWAIN, Mark (Samuel L. Clemens). A Tramp Abroad. Illustrated by W. Fr. Brown, True Williams, B. Day And Other Artists - With Also Three or Four Pictures Made By The Author Of This Book Without Outside Help; In All Three Hundred And Fourteen Illustrations. London Chatto & Windus, 1880.First U.K. Edition, single volume issue. Octavo (7 3/8 x 4 7/8 in; 187 x 124 mm). xxiii, [3], 564, 32 as catalogue pp. Catalogue dated October, 1880. Publisher's original pictorial cloth. A very nice copy indeed."One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Europe on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it" (from Chapter One).Prior to the publication of A Tramp Abroad, Twain reported "This new book of mine is different from any book I ever wrote. Before, I revised the manuscript as I went a long, and knew pretty well at the end of each week how much of the week's work I should use, and how much I should throw away. But this one has been written pretty much all in a lump, and I hardly know how much of it I will use, or how much will have to be torn up. When I start at it I tear it up pretty fast, but I think the first half will stand pretty much as it is. I am not quite sure that there is enough yet prepared, but I am still at work at it" (The New York Times, September 3, 1879)."It is delicious, whether you open it at the sojourn in Heidelberg, or the voyage down the Neckar on a raft, or the mountaineering in Switzerland, or the excursion beyond Alps into Italy" (William Dean Howells, The Atlantic, May 1880).BAL 3386, note.
