Item Description: Hartford: American Publishing Co., 1899 through 1907., 1907. Twenty-five volumes. Octavo. Publisher's three quarter olive brown morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, lettered in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portraits and plates. A number of the spines are characteristically sun-faded to lighter brown, occasional rubbing to raised bands and toes of a few spines, but a very good or better set, with none of the deterioration to the joints so common to this binding. The esteemed "Autograph Edition," limited to 512 numbered sets, signed by Clemens in the first volume: "S.L. Clemens / (Mark Twain)." Eighteen of the plates are signed by their respective artist, including Peter Newell, A.B. Frost, Charles N. Flagg, E.W. Kemble, Karl Gerhardt, Dan Beard, et al. Charles Dudley Warner signed the limitation page to volume 10 (THE GILDED AGE), and Brander Matthews signed at the end of his critical essay in volume one, as usual. This edition was published as a subscription set in a hierarchy of bindings, and sets were occasionally customized for the purchaser by the inclusion of related manuscript leaves, letters and other inserts. Such is the case with this set, and it is accompanied by a two page a.l.s. from Walter Bliss, 23 December 1905, to the original owner, detailing the arrangements made for Christmas Day delivery, and pointing out the location of the extra material (volumes I, V, VI, IX and X), and mentioning some extra loose plates, which are no longer present. In volume one are inserted a) a one page a.l.s. from Clemens, Riverdale on Hudson, 5 March 1902, to "Dear Bliss," written prior to departure for travels and trying to settle some publishing matters pertaining to a deal with Colliers and cancellation of another option, signed "S.L. Clemens," ca. fifty words; and b) a leaf from the autograph manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, in Clemens' hand, numbered '22' at the top margin, and beginning ".here, on the railroad & the steamboat, & say 'this' one little spot shall not be touched - this hovel shall be sacred .," ca. 125 words. Volume V contains an extra limitation leaf from the "Author's Signed Edition" of FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR, unnumbered, but signed both as Twain and as Clemens. Volume VI includes the facsimile printing of the letter by Clemens commenting on the frontis photogravure (the image of Clemens transposed into a horse and steer drawn cart) for that special edition. Volume XI includes a) another leaf from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE in Clemens's hand, with corrections and revisions, ca 125 words, numbered '60' in the top margin, and beginning: "'But how should I know whether they were boys or girls?'," and b) a leaf from the manuscript in Warner's hand, numbered '820' in the upper margin, beginning: "'Daft is a little strong ., " ca 150 words. Volume XI contains a third leaf in Clemens's hand from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, numbered '421' then altered to '1000' in the upper margin, heavily revised, with significant deletions and insertions, ca. 150 words. While sets with a single Clemens leaf (often coupled with a Warner leaf) from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE are not uncommon, sets with multiple Clemens leaves are uncommon, and those with multiple leaves plus a letter are even more exceptional. Three of the late volumes coincided with the publication of their respective public trade editions. BAL 3456. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 61614

Item Description: New York: Harper, 1949, 1949. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Original black cloth, dust jacket. Slipcase. A fine copy. First edition of Samuel Clemens’s wonderful love letters to his wife Livy, signed by the author both “S. L. Clemens” and “Mark Twain” on the tipped-in limitation sheet. This is one of 155 numbered copies of the deluxe limited edition. The leaf also bears the notice, “these signatures of Mark Twain have been in the possession of Harper & Brothers for fifty years. There are no more.” These letters span the years from the couple’s initial courtship in 1868 through Livy’s death in 1904. In his long first letter to Livy, who had rebuffed him, Clemens writes in small part, “I do not regret that I have loved you, still love & shall always love you. I accept the situation, uncomplainingly, hard as it is. Of old I am acquaint- ed with grief, disaster & disappointment, & have borne these troubles as became a man. So, also, shall I bear this last & bitterest, even though it break my heart. I would not dishonor this worthiest love that has yet been born within me by any puerile thought, or word, or deed. It is better to have loved and lost you than that my life should have remained forever the blank it was before ”. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12592135014

And while the dust jackets are basically heavy plain gray paper, their spines are clearly printed in black and red lettering, identifying the titles and volumes therein.

Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes. Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets with printed paper labels on the spine.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before it's publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267). Bookseller Inventory # 01682

Item Description: Pacific Editions, [San Francisco], 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Hobson, Charles (illustrator). Limited Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Limited edition of 38 copies, this being no. 35. Charles Hobson, book artist extraordinaire, has brought together a perfectly lovely tale of love by Mark Twain, personified with images of a running man and woman based on the human motion studies by Eadweard Muybridge made in 1901. Twain wrote two separate stories, "Extracts for Adam's Diary" and later "Eve's Diary", with much of the sentiment of the two for each other derived from the deep love he and his wife, Livy, shared throughout their lives. The French Door design of the binding of this book enables the reader to compare Adam's and Eve's "diaries" while the two figures race towards each other. ***DESCRIPTION: Made as a limited edition of 38 copies; 13 x 5 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches, 46 pages, signed by Charles Hobson on the colophon page, the pages contained within a traditional book-style binding of paper decorated with red apples and green concentric circles on a black background, black cloth spine with gilt lettering, publisher's matching slipcase covered in grey cloth with a front pastedown of a small piece of decorate paper matching the boards. The diaries have been published here in a French door style of binding with a concertina fold which allow each diary to be read as single, integral work while at the same time allowing passages from each to be easily compared; the concertina also provides a place to print the verses from Genesis that were Twain's source and, on the inside fold, the handwriting of Twain and his wife, Livy. Adam and Eve draw closer to one another and ultimately embrace. This movement toward an embrace has been given a visual counterpoint by use of the running figures based on the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge published in 1901. Each page of the diaries contains a folded and collaged image and a scrap of the handwriting of Mark Twain and Livy from letters they exchanged during a two year period when doctors forbade Twain to see Livy in her sickroom. The final drawings have been made as monotypes with pastel and have been printed as digital pigment prints. The prints have been cut out so that they can be opened across one another to overlap and to form a visual embrace. A separate print made as a composite of the last images in the book has been folded into an accordion and included in a pocket at the back of the book, this print is also signed by Charles Hobson. The digital pigment prints have been printed on an Epson 2200 pigment based digital printer which produces images which are water-fast and resist fading. The concertina and French door structure with cut-out pages and collaged folded sheets has been designed by Charles Hobson and assembled with the assistance of Alice Shaw. John DeMerritt made the board covers and slipcase (N.B., description from Charles Hobson's web site). ***CONDITION: Fine in a like slipcase. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Item Description: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929., 1929. The Stormfield EditionTWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes (8 5/8 x 5 1/2 in; 219 x 142 mm). Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine set.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died twelve years before it's publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267). Bookseller Inventory # 02679
