About this Item: 1878. New York: Slote, Woodman & Co., n.d. [1878]. 4 pp undated ads. Original red-orange wrappers decorated in black and gold. First Edition, second printing, second binding, of this collection of nine short tales. The title one is an amusing tale about the author hearing a musical jingle and having it "infect" his mind like a virus -- wiping out his memory and incapacitating his ability to write, until he inadvertently passes the "virus" off to someone else. Another tale, "The Loves of Alonso Fitts Clarence and Rosannah Ethelton," is said to be the first story written that includes a telephone as part of the plot (24 months after Bell's patent). The second printing is identified by (a) Twain's name on the title page in facsimile autograph rather than in roman type; (b) two leaves of ads, rather than one; (c) correction of the error "health offi. could" on p. 91, and (d) sixteen lines of text (postscript added) on p. 101. The book was issued simultaneously in cloth and in wrappers -- each of which has an earlier and a later state; this is in the later wrapper binding, with "Mark Twain's Punch" on the spine and with the larger rear cover illustration. This is a very good-plus copy, with minor wear at the spine ends (barely affecting one letter), plus a large bookplate on the inside front cover. Today, copies in wrappers are somewhat scarcer than copies in cloth. Blanck 3378. Seller Inventory # 14496

About this Item: New York: Harper, 1949, 1949. Hardcover. 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). Seller Inventory # ABE-12592135014

About this Item: The American Publishing Co, Hartford, 1876. FIRST EDITION. Wood-engraved frontispiece and half title printed on separate leaves, and numerous wood engravings by True Williams and others. Lovely full blue morocco with gilt borders, spine in compartments decorated in gilt; an excellent copy. First printing, first issue, with all issue points noted. Featuring one of the best-loved characters in American fiction, we join Tom with his well-known incidents of the whitewashed fence, his love affair with Becky Thatcher, and the trial of Injun Joe, all evocative of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his youth. A somber undercurrent is threaded through the high humor and brazen nostalgia of the story, which highlights the dichotomy of the innocence of childhood and the inequities of the realities of adulthood in this Midwestern town: base emotions and fallacies, murder and retribution, starvation and slavery. The adventures of Tom Sawyer was continually adapted for film and television. Lauded as the "Father of American Literature," Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his most-used pen name, Mark Twain, is a hallmark of classic American literature. Known for his famous work, The adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain is known for his radical civil rights views and often-censored subject matter. His works run the gamut from novels, to collections of letters, to humorous stories about nineteenth century steamboat culture. Also included is a "FIRST DAY OF ISSUE STAMP AND ENVELOPE, Hannibal, MO., Feb. 13, 1940, 9-am." Inside the envelope is a pictorial post card depicting the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn statue in Hannibal, MO. Both are in the original condition, as new. Seller Inventory # 16196
