Description

    Mark Twain. A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur. With 220 Illustrations by Dan Beard. London: Chatto & Windus, 1889.

    First English edition. Octavo. xvi, 521 pages. 32 page publisher's catalog at the rear dated October 1889, 220 illustrations throughout the text.

    Publisher's red cloth covers with the front cover and spine illustrated in black and lettered in gilt. The publisher's mark is on the back cover. Illustrated endpapers. Some rubbing to the covers, slightly bumped corners and head and foot of the spine, sunned spine, fraying to the spine, tape repair to the hinges. Altogether a good copy.

    This is a first English edition due to the title A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur, rather than A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, utilized by all American editions and later English editions. Page [526] is a tailpiece, and [527] displays the publisher's device. BAL 3429.
