First State, intermediate B (BAL): lacking the image of Twain in flames on p. 441, but with "The St. Louis Hotel" caption on p. 443. An excellent copy in the publisher's half-morocco. Never rebacked, but it appears that the inner hinges have been closed and that small cracks at the head and foot of the spine have been repaired. With most leather-bound copies crumbling to bits, this one is decidedly above average.The author's first-hand look at navigating the Mississippi by riverboat and the changes to that area many years after the Civil War. 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."

Blanck's intermediate A, with the tailpiece of Twain in flames on p.441 still present, and with caption on p.443 corrected to read "The St. Charles Hotel". Profusely illustrated throughout. Tall 8vo, publisher’s original decorated cloth with black stamped decorations and gilt pictorial vignettes on the upper cover, the spine decorated in black and with a large gilt pictorial vignette, lettered in gilt, a.e.g. 624. An uncommonly fine and bright copy, and fine copies are becoming extinct. ONE OF TWAIN’S BEST BOOKS AND A RARE FINE COPY IN ORIGINAL CLOTH OF THIS IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. Twain writes about his home and his muse-the great Mississippi. "As a dwelling place for civilized man it is by far the first upon our globe." (preface) In this largely autobiographical narrative, Twain gives us a vivid account of his youth on the great river. A brilliant firsthand account of the steamboat age, the science of river piloting, and the life of the river itself from the point of view of those who made their living navigating it. A truly wonderful book and a valued piece of the American legacy. Bookseller Inventory # 27691
