DescriptionMark Twain. Is Shakespeare Dead? From My Autobiography. New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, MCMIX. [1909.]
First edition, first issue. Published April 1909. Octavo. 149  pages. Two inserted frontispiece portrait plates.
Publisher's green cloth with the front cover and spine lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt. Light rubbing to the covers, slight bumping to the corners and head and foot of the spine, some fraying to the head and foot of the spine, slight cracking to the front hinge but still sound. Altogether a very good copy.
In this non-fiction work written by Samuel Clemens late in his life, the author questions the authorship of Shakespearean canon. All copies display the same error on page 55, line 5: epipped rather than equipped.
