Item Description: Boston J. R. Osgood and Co 1882, 1882. First American edition, with "Franklin Press" on the copyright page. With 192 illustrations. Square 8vo, publisher’s original sheep binding, a deluxe binding offered by the publisher, one of a small number, now quite scarce. 411 pp. A handsome copy, the sheep in quite good condition with some typical rubbing and an antique strengthening to the hinges. All in all, a quite collectible copy with some of the age evidence one would expect with all of the sheep bindings. THE RARE FIRST STATE IN ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE BINDING STATES. Twain's timeless tale of two little boys who switch places to see how the other half lives. This is the scarcest and most expensive binding offered by the publishers and is very elusive in the marketplace. THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER was quite unlike anything Twain had done up till that time. It is a fine adventure with a delicate vein of "Twainian" humor running throughout. Twain took up a short domicile in Montreal in an attempt to establish residency there so that he could register the copy-right in Canada, England and the United States. His past encounters with piracy led him to make this attempt. Bookseller Inventory # 22775

Item Description: 1881. A Tale for Young People of All Ages. With One Hundred and Ninety Illustrations. London: Chatto & Windus, 1881. 32 pp ads dated Nov 1881. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black. First Edition of Twain's historical tale for the young. During the last years of Henry VIII's reign, a prince finds a pauper who looks exactly like him and persuades him to exchange clothes -- at which time the prince is chased from the palace, is forced to live as a pauper, and experiences first-hand the wretchedness of the poor and the cruelty of the law.~The London edition was intentionally published before the American edition, for copyright purposes; it was published in late November 1881, followed quickly by (or perhaps simultaneous with) the Montreal edition, both of which were followed by the (1882-dated) Boston edition in mid-to-late December. This English edition is much scarcer than the American edition, perhaps because it came out during the brief period when flourished the ill-conceived idea of binding leaves with staples; said staples quickly proved to do the job miserably, so by the mid-1880s binders reverted to using string.~This copy has the primary ad catalogue dated November 1881, and is in near-fine condition (minor darkening of the spine, volume slightly askew as usual for this 400-page volume); there is light damage to the gutter between pages 176 and 177, the result of the aforementioned stapled gatherings. The original patterned endpapers are clean and intact (remarkable for such a hefty book); the front free one has an early gift inscription (son to father, December 1882). McBride pp 70-72; Blanck 3396. Bookseller Inventory # 13698

Item Description: James R. Osgood and Company, Boston, 1882. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration front and spine, black stamped decorations front and spine. 192 illustrations. 411 pages. Later issue, with Franklin Press imprint but textual corrections on pages 124, 263 and 362. ("Later" might have been a few days; there seems to be considerable confusion about the first five printings as to chronology and timing, all within a year or so.) The covers are worn at corners and spine-ends, with slight loss of cloth. Scuffs and specks. The endpapers and edges are heavily foxed, but the rest of the pages are not foxed. Name in ink on front endpaper. There is a crack at the manuscript page, showing the threads, otherwise the book is sound, with tight hinges and pages. Overall, a very decent example, with bright gilt both front and spine. Bookseller Inventory # 001257
