Description

    Mark Twain. Autobiography, (Burlesque.) First Romance, and Memoranda. Toronto: James Campbell & Son., [n.d., 1871?]

    First edition, Unauthorized Canadian edition. Small octavo. 184 pages. Very few illustrations throughout the text.

    Publisher's maroon boards with the front cover stamped in black and the front cover and spine lettered in gilt. The back cover displays a small blind-stamped roundel. Black coated endpapers. Some rubbing to the covers, slightly bumped corners and head and foot of the spine, sunned spine, very light fraying to the head and foot of the spine. Altogether a very good copy.

    Mark Twain's third book includes two stories, First Romance which was first published in The Express in 1870, and Burlesque Autobiography first published as Memoranda by Mark Twain in The Galaxy.
