Item #14824 THE JUMPING FROG. Mark Twain.


In English, then in French, then clawed back into a civilized language once more by patient, unremunerated toil. Illustrated by F. Strothman. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1903. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black, green and white.

First Separate Edition (thus -- considerably revised from the 1867 original; however, except for the final three-page note, this had appeared in this form in SKETCHES (1875)). This is a remarkably fine copy (spine very slightly faded as always) of a book that does not frequently turn up in desirable condition; atypically, the white pigment on front cover and spine is intact. Blanck 3477; McBride p. 212. Item #14824

Price: $450.00
