Description

    First Edition, First Issue, with the Printed Dust Jacket

    Mark Twain. Christian Science. With Notes Containing Corrections to Date. Illustrated. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1907.

    First edition, first issue, with correct points per Blanck: seventeen titles listed in the advertisement for the Uniform Mark Twain set, rather than eighteen; list of illustrations in eight lines instead of six; and the frontispiece is captioned with Twain's facsimile signature and the year 1906 rather than 1907. Octavo. [6], [1]-362 pp. Frontispiece and two plates inserted.

    Red cloth, gilt-stamped front board and spine. Publisher's printed dust jacket. Spine faded and rubbed, minor soiling, binding starting at the bottom of the front joint and hinge, previous owner's name on front endpaper. Jacket heavily chipped and worn, with some loss. Over opened at title. Still, a very good copy.

    BAL 3497. Johnson, Twain, p. 87.
