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 The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and that he was therefore free to speak his "whole frank mind."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 / London, 1912. Variant Green Cloth, Gilt. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Plates (illustrator). First Edition. Volumes I, Iii And Iv [Of Four], Each With Publisher's Code I-M On Copyright Page [The Earliest Issues Of The Near-Simultaneous Three Volume Edition In Red Cloth Have Code "H-M", Indicating Publication A Month Earlier]. Smooth Green Cloth, Gilt Spine Exactly As In The Regular Green Cloth Issue, And Without Gilt On Cover, But Otherwise Identical To The Usual Four Volume Edition Which Was Published In A Rougher, Thicker Cloth With Gilt Design And Rules On Front Cover. Signed "Sincerely, Albert Bigelow Paine" Beneath The Facsimile Letter And Signature Of Clemens/Twain, And With An Additional Inscription On First Front Endpaper "To Dorothy Gish From Albert Bigelow Paine". This May Have Been A Binding For Or By The Author For Personal Distribution, Separate From The Issued Edition In Rough Green Cloth And With Gilt Covers, Hence The Generic Greeting On The Facsimile Page, And Then Given As A Gift To Dorothy Gish Long After Publicatrion, As She Was The Subject Of A Favorable Biography By Paine Published In 1928. Very Clean And Bright, Gilt Still Briliant, Cloth Unfaded, But Damp Marks On Rear Cover Of Volume Iv, And Lacking Volume Ii, Which May Be Difficult To Replace As This Binding Was Apparently Only Used For The Author's Personal Copies. The Volumes Are From The Estate Of Actress Dorothy Gish Rennie. Signed and Inscribed By Author. Seller Inventory # 024872

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: Gabriel Wells 1922-1925, 1922. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. This is the complete set of Twain's writings in 37 volumes, including the 2-volume autobiography, bound in finely woven blue cloth spines with printed paper labels; in buff-colored paper-covered boards. "This definitive edition consists of one thousand twenty-four sets, the first volume of each bearing the original autograph signatures of Mark Twain No. 553." "The special fly-leaf was signed by Mark Twain in 1906 in anticipation of the present definitive edition of his works" signed by Albert Bigelow Paine (underscored); the next tipped-in plate is signed by "SL. Clemens / Mark Twain (underscored)". "Deckle-edged paper with splendid photogravure frontispieces and plates throughout. Many pages unopened. With all 37 dust jackets present. One jacket has a small piece missing at the bottom of the rear inside flap; all other jackets are complete with light wear, edge-rubbing and a light stain here and there. All the volumes are very good plus to near fine, though there are occasional bumps to the corners, blemishes, a small hole at the bottom of one volume, purportedly caused by an errant BB, a touch of light white spotting here and there to the spines of a handful of volumes, a wrinkled section of a few pages at the top of another volume, and occasional shelfwear to some of the favored tomes; but all the volumes are complete with their splendid plates, labels, and dust jackets. 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. Illustrated with photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after E. W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, Peter Newell, A. B. Frost, and others. With notes of appreciation and commentary by W. D. Howells, Booth Tarkington, G. K. Chesterton, and many others. A very handsome, complete set of the Definitive Edition of Twain's Works with the Signatures of Mark Twain, S.L. Clemens, and Albert Bigelow Paine. In addition there is a signed letter of provenance from the original owner describing the history of the books and their journey. First Edition signed/limited complete works. Signed by Author(s).
