With Many Drawings by Lloyd Hoff. Collected and Edited, with an Introduction by Franklin Walker. San Francisco: George Fields, 1938. Original green paper-covered boards with black cloth spine and green spine label, with dust jacket.
First Edition of this collection of sketches that Twain had written at the outset of his career, for Golden Era in San Francisco during the 1860s. He did not have them collected in book form earlier because he considered many of them too unrefined for his subsequent Eastern readers.
This copy is in fine condition; the dust jacket is near-fine (spine slightly faded, a few tiny tears). Blanck 3559. Item #14977
