About this Item: Twain, Mark [Clemens, S. L.] Collier, Robert J.,ed. IN MEMORIAM PETER FENELON COLLIER. New York:Privately Printed, 1910. First edition, one of 985copies, signed by the editor, Collier's son,Robert J. Collier. Gray boards, gilt, t.e.g.,uncut. Mild rubbing, else a fine crisp copy ofthis fragile volume that is usually found interrible shape. Contains the first printing of aTwain condolence letter at page 81. Also includesletters from Theodore Roosevelt, society friends,minor authors and editors, and informativeobituaries from major magazines and newspapers.Robert J. Collier had taken control of hisfather's publishing businesses several yearsearlier, and became a good friend of Twain aswell; it was Robert Collier who pulled the famousprank on Twain by sending him a "baby elephant"for Christmas. A finely printed memorial volumefor Twain's friend, the book and magazinepublisher. Printed on French handmade paper(Arches), and illustrated with numerous mountedphotographs of Collier engaged in his favoriteactivities (steeplechase, polo, fox-hunting,etc.). A much rarer book than the limitation wouldsuggest. OCLC locates only 11 copies (compare thisto 18 copies of a similar volume limited to 152copies). Copies rarely appear in the market; allof this would strongly suggest that only a smallportion of the edition ever got distributed.Johnson, p. 119. Not in BAL. Seller Inventory # 22066
