About this Item

Twenty-five volumes; 5 ¾ in. x 8 ½ in. Volume One: The verso of the f.f.e.p. has the bookplate of William G. Mather (1857-1951), a Cleveland, Ohio-based industrialist and book collector. Bound in at this point is a tab reading "Original Autograph Manuscript Pages from The Gilded Age." There are two manuscript pages: the first in Twain's hand with some corrections and cross-outs; the second in the hand of Charles Dudley Warner, who was Twain's collaborator for "The Gilded Age." The verso of the half-title page in Volume One is the limitation page and states: "The Autograph Edition of Mark Twain's Works is limited to Five Hundred and Twelve Copies, of which this is No. 4 [signed]: S.L. Clemens (Mark Twain)." This is followed by (1) an engraved portrait of Twain; (2) title-page of the set; (3) the title-page for the work in Volume I ("Innocents Abroad") and (4) an essay entitled "Biographical Criticism" ( at pp. v-xxxiii), which is signed at the end by the author, Brander Matthews. All volumes are illustrated (some are photo-gravures); and some illustrations are signed. Presswork by The University Press, Cambridge. (1899-1907). Volume 10 of the set is the first volume of "The Gilded Age;" it has a limitation page reading the same as that in Volume I and is signed by Charles Dudley Warner (only). Bound in full, dark red-brown morocco leather by Pfister, with its stamp on the end-papers. With five raised bands on the spine gilt titling, and a gilt floral design on the spine and front covers, with doublures of green and dark red-brown morocco with a gilt design of floral sprays, gilt borders, gray silk end-papers; top-edges gilt. Some of the spine ends, outer hinges, or cover corners show light wear or rubbing to the leather; a few volumes show more wear. Very good +. Bookseller Inventory # m-35
