Item Description: Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883, 1883. Quarto. Original publisher's half calf, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with red and green morocco title labels, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Contemporary ownership inscription.a Minor rubbing to extremities, but an extremely smart copy indeed in excellent condition. Illustrated frontispiece, steamboat vignette to title page, illustrated plates and vignettes in the text throughout. First US edition, in the very scarce publisher's calf. This copy in intermediate state "A" with the first state illustrated tail-piece on page 441, but the caption on page 443 corrected to "The St Charles Hotel". Clemens's classic anecdotal travel narrative, which contains an autobiographical account of his childhood experiences, as well as his life on the river as a steamboat pilot. Huck Finn makes a lengthy cameo on pages 42–61, a story within the chapter detailing Huck and Jim's attempt to reach Cairo which does not appear in Huckleberry Finn, published two years later. To find a first edition copy of this title in any example of the publisher's calf binding, let alone one in such smart condition, is very uncommon. BAL 3411; Johnson, pp. 41-43.

Written concurrently with "Huckleberry Finn" and sharing several themes and even a few passages with that masterpiece. "The material offered by observations on the journey is various beyond enumeration, and much of it is extremely amusing. Hoaxes and exaggerations palmed off by pilots and other natives along the way upon supposed ignorant strangers; stories of gamblers and obsolete robbers; glimpses of character and manners; descriptions of scenery and places; statistics of trade; Indian legends; extracts from the comments of foreign travelers, -- all these occur, interspersed with two or three stories of either humorous or tragic import, or of both together."

Item Description: James R. Osgood and Company, Boston, 1883. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 316 images by John Harley, Edund Henry Garrett, and A. B. Shute, incl Twain Hair on Fire (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This is an exceptional copy of one of Twain's most revered and important books, and according to William Dean Howells, this was his favorite. During an 1872 visit to the Midwest, the author ¿was struck by the great diminution of steamboat traffic on the Ohio River and became anxious to document the steamboat era before it vanished altogether¿ [The resulting volume is] widely regarded as both one of Mark Twain¿s major works and a classic on the Mississippi itself. Its early chapters especially are unrivaled in evoking the excitement of their time¿It usefully supplements [his] fictional works about the river and includes much else of value¿ (LeMaster & Wilson, 467). This is a first edition, second intermediate state B, BAL 3411, with the first edition issue point of a tailpiece illustration of Twain¿s burning head on fire in an urn, (p. 441,) removed from later printings and does not appear in the remainder of the first edition or any subsequent printing. Also, on page 443 of the US first state, the caption on the illustration reads ¿The St. Louis Hotel.¿ It was corrected to read ¿The St. Charles Hotel¿ in this second state copy, and all subsequent copies. Publisher's decorative brown cloth, with pictorial panels depicting the Mississippi River stamped in bright gilt to the front board and spine, with decorative ruling and ornamentation stamped in black. All edges bright gilt. "Life on the Mississippi" is said to have been the first manuscript ever to be submitted to a publisher in typewritten form. Published simultaneously in the United States and the UK in 1883, but purists prefer the US first. Twain frequently found fault or requested changes in his books as they were being printed, so points of issue are frequent and complicating, causing multiple states of his first editions. Here are the points of issue to evaluate "Life on the Mississippi": the US first was printed in Boston. "Boston" and "1883," with no later dates should appear. "St Charles Hotel" on p. 443. Thus, first edition, second intermediate state B. This copy has been lovingly and professionally restored: original binding threading reinforced, text block tightened; original spine thickened and matching cloth used to rebuild spine top and bottom. New headbands and end sheets added. Covers and gilt lightly cleaned and brightened, no repainting or colorizing added. Light pencilled flourishing signature of original owner "Christmas 1883" on ffep. No other marks. Photos available on request. US postage rates apply. Bookseller Inventory # 160520
