MARK TWAIN'S (BURLESQUE) AUTOBIOGRAPHY and FIRST ROMANCE.

New York: Sheldon & Company, n.d. [1871]. Original printed wrappers.

First Edition, second state (with the Ball Black & Co. ad on the inside front cover) of this comically-illustrated burlesque. This title was also issued in cloth.~This is a near-fine copy (very little wear other than one small corner chip in the front wrapper, faint damp-mark at the edges). Though this is the most common of Twain's very early productions, we do not often see wrappered copies in any better condition. McBride pp 16-17; Blanck 3326. Item #11952

Price: $275.00
