THE £1,000,000 [MILLION POUND] BANK-NOTE and Other New Stories. Mark Twain.

THE £1,000,000 [MILLION POUND] BANK-NOTE and Other New Stories.

New York: Charles L. Webster & Company, 1893. 9 pp undated ads. Original tan cloth decorated in brown, black and gilt.

First Edition of this collection of nine pieces -- some fiction and some non-fiction. The title tale speculates what would happen if a perfectly honest American chap were turned adrift in London with nothing but a million-pound bank note issued by the Bank of England, and no way to account for his being in possession of it.

This is a close-to-fine copy -- spine slightly darkened (as usual), but scarcely any of the usual cover soil. Blanck 3436; McBride p. 158. Item #14856

Price: $495.00
