About this Item: University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Eighth Printing.. 760 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. AUTOBIOGRAPHY. "I've struck it!" Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. "And I will give it awayÑto you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography." Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his "Final (and Right) Plan" for telling the story of his life. His innovative notionÑto "talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment"Ñmeant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and that he was therefore free to speak his "whole frank mind." The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain's death. In celebration of this important milestone and in honor of the cherished tradition of publishing Mark Twain's works, UC Press is proud to offer for the first time Mark Twain's uncensored autobiography in its entirety and exactly as he left it. This major literary event brings to readers, admirers, and scholars the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain's authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave as he intended. Harriet Elinor Smith is an editor at the Mark Twain Project, which is housed within the Mark Twain Papers, the world's largest archive of primary materials by this major American writer. Under the direction of General Editor Robert H. Hirst, the Project's editors are producing the first comprehensive edition of all of Mark Twain's writings. "There's really nothing sulfurous about this book. Mark Twain is terrific company, plain and simple. He knew everyone, went everywhere, seemed to be interested in everything and is capable of making the reader Ñ in 2010 Ñ laugh on nearly every page. And this is not, strictly speaking, an autobiography. It's an autobiographical miscellany, a collection of Twain's many attempts to write about his extraordinary life. . . . This is a book for dipping, not plunging. Read, as Twain might put it, until interest pales, and then jump. It feels like a form of time travel. One moment you're on horseback in the Hawaiian islands Ñ or recovering from saddle boils with a cigar in your mouth Ñ and the next moment you're meeting the Viennese maid he called, in a private joke, 'Wuthering Heights.' We can hardly wait for Volume 2."ÑNew York Times/The Opinion Pages (Key Words: Mark Twain, Autobiography, John Greenleaf Whittier, Charles Dudley Warner, Joseph H. Twichell, Theodore Roosevelt, Slavery, Albert Bigelow Paine, Republican Party, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, Harriet Elinor Smith, Isabel V. Lyon, Charles Jervis Langdon, William Dean Howells, Ulysses S.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York and London, 1924. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 759 p. First edition, first printing per BAL 3537. Custom binding, we believe from the unknown number of sheets distributed to "certain antiquarian booksellers and collectors" (BAL Vol. 2, pg. 226). As Mr. Paine states in his introduction, "Mark Twain had been a celebrity for a good many years before he could be persuaded to regard himself as anything more than an accident, a newswriter to whom distinction had come as a matter of good fortune rather than as a tribute to genius". However, subsequent to the publication of General Grant's Memoirs, Mark Twain was persuaded that his own story would be of interest and the great work began. ***DESCRIPTION: Half-red leather over marbled boards, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, printed tissue-guarded frontispieces (different in each volume), title pages in red and black, first printing code of "H-Y" on copyright pages of both volumes, Index (7 pp.) and publisher's ads (2 pp.) at the back of Volume II. Pagination: Volume I [i]-xvi, [1]-368 and Volume II [i-viii], 1-365, 2 pp. publisher's ads. ***CONDITION: Although overall in near fine condition, we are grading as very good only due to tearing at the top of the spine of Volume I and rubbing to all four corners (please see pictures and request more if needed). The text blocks are square and solid, the hinges are strong, the paper boards are in fine condition, and the interiors are bright and clean, entirely free of prior owner markings. ***CITATION: BAL 3537. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York and London, 1924. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 755 pp. Two-volume set with dust jackets and scarce slipcase. First edition, first printing of Mark Twain's famous autobiography which has very recently been re-released with copious notes; although many believe Mark Twain wished his autobiography to not be published until 100 years after his death, his friend and literary executor at the time, Albert Bigelow Paine, clearly felt differently as this set was initially published in 1924, only 14 years after his death. It was felt this was sufficient time to honour his actual request that they not be published until "long after" his death. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in navy blue cloth, facsimile signature in gilt on the front boards, gilt lettering on the spines, top edges gilt, frontispiece in each volume a different sepia-toned photogravure of Twain, title pages in red and black; octavo size (approximately 9.25" tall), pagination: Volume I, (i)-xvi, (1)-368; Volume II, (i-iv), 1-365, followed by 2 pages of publisher's ads. Dust jackets are of light blue with midnight blue lettering, the frontispiece from Volume I serving on both jackets as an illustration on the front, publisher's ad on the back panel for "Important Biographies", summary of book on front flap, publisher's ad on back flap. Slipcase also covered in light blue paper, both sides mirror the front of the dustjackets. ***CONDITION: Both volumes are near fine, with strong, square text blocks, solid hinges, straight corners with a hint of rubbing (if any), and the interiors are clean and bright; there is a slight amount of rubbing to the head and tail of the spines and some foxing to the gutter margins of the endpapers. The fragile dust jackets, which we paired to the books from another set, are good only with substantial wear and some sunning; Volume I is missing the top half of the spine and the back panel is detached from the remainder of the spine; the jacket for Volume II is missing a chip out of the head of the spine. The slipcase is good plus, with all pieces being present; there is overall wear and some soiling, and some of the seams are beginning to split. ***CITATION: BAL #3537; on copyright page: "First Edition" with code letters "H - Y", State A with Vol. 1 frontispiece, printed tissue inserted and Vol. 2, two pages of advertisements followed by a blank leaf. ***POSTAGE: Please note that due to the size and weight of this work additional postage may apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international addresses, please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

About this Item: Various places, mainly Iowa, 1850s-1880s, 1850. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. TWAIN IN LOVE IN IOWA. This unique collection of photographs, books, letters, and other objects is from the Creel family, Samuel Clemens’s relations on his mother’s side. One highlight of the collection is the charming ambrotype portrait of young Ella Creel, one of Sam’s “favorite companions” and a “one-time sweetheart.” The photograph dates to the time of that youthful flirtation, when Ella was in her teens and Sam was about twenty. In 1854 Sam Clemens’s older brother Orion left Hannibal, Missouri and moved with his wife Mollie to her hometown, Keokuk, Iowa. They were accompanied by their widowed mother Jane, who had family in Iowa. Young Sam Clemens traveled east working as a printer and then came to Iowa. He worked on his brother’s newspaper in Keokuk in 1855-56 before becoming an apprentice riverboat pilot. Later Orion and his wife moved away, but by 1874 they had returned, and their mother Jane moved to Keokuk as well. As a result, Twain had early and enduring ties to the area and its people. He referred to his Iowa relatives in his correspondence, and he visited Keokuk on a number of occasions throughout his life. The collection, which includes a number of otherwise unknown objects, comprises: 1. Mary Eleanor “Ella” Creel (1841-1894). Photograph portrait as a teenage girl. Ambrotype. Ella Creel was the daughter of Mary Ann Patterson and Robert Paxton Creel and thus was a distant cousin of Sam Clemens on his mother’s side. In April 1859 Sam Clemens became a licensed riverboat pilot on the Mississippi between Keokuk, Iowa and New Orleans. He asked his mother and a friend to chaperone Ella Creel on a trip to New Orleans on a boat he piloted, proudly taking the three women on a tour of the city when they arrived. According to Twain’s biographer Albert Bigelow Paine, Ella was one of Sam’s “favorite companions” and a “one-time sweetheart.” 2. Mary Eleanor “Ella” Creel (1841-1894). Photograph portrait as an adult. Ambrotype. 3. Mollie Clemens. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Mollie was the wife of Sam’s brother Orion. 4. Charles Riffley. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Charles was the husband of Mollie Clemens’s sister. 5. Robert Paxton Creel (1815-1883). Photograph portrait. Albumen print (6 x 8 in.). Inscribed by Creel on verso “For David C. Walker from his Grand Pa.” Father of Sam Clemens’s sweetheart Ella, Robert P. Creel was cousin of Samuel Clemens’s mother Jane Lampton Clemens. Creel’s father John married Polly Casey, a sister of Margaret Casey, who married Benjamin Lampton and was mother of Jane Lampton (later Clemens), the author’s mother. Curiously, Robert Creel was succeeded in the Iowa state legislature in 1856 by a man named Tom Sawyer. It has been suggested that this is the source of the name of Twain’s character. 6. Margaret Creel Scott. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Margaret was Ella Creel’s sister. 7. Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad (1870). Signed by Ella Creel’s brother Joseph. 8. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Poetical Works (1867). Signed by Ella Creel’s sister Abba. 9. Perrin, Fables (1839). Signed by Ella Creel’s sister Abba. 10. Pamela Moffett (Sam Clemens’s sister). Autograph letter signed to Jane Clemens (1877). In this chatty letter to their mother, Sam’s sister discusses family matters, refers to Orion and Mollie (with whom Jane was living in Keokuk), and gives reading recommendations for her brother “Sammy.” Pamela is said to have been the model for Tom’s cousin Mary in Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. 11. Jane Clemens (Samuel Clemens’s mother), signed napkin. Linen napkin or handkerchief with the ink signature of Jane Clemens. Jane was a major influence in Sam’s life, and she figures in several of his books, most notably as Tom Sawyer’s Aunt Polly. Provenance: a fine Clemens. Seller Inventory # ABE-12592123255
