    Publisher's dark blue cloth covers with the front covers ruled in blind-stamp and displays a facsimile of Mark Twain's signature in gilt. The spines are lettered in gilt. Title pages in both volumes are in black and red. Very light rubbing to the covers, very lightly bumped corners and heads and feet of the spines, some very minor fraying to the feet, small bookseller's stamps affixed to the front pastedown endpapers, very light cracking to the hinges of both volumes but still sound . Altogether a very good copy.

    Although the complete work was not published until after Samuel Clemens's death, he did publish Chapters from my Autobiography in North American Review from 1906 to 1907 in volumes 183 - 186. H-Y on the copyright page below First Edition signifies a printing in August, 1924.
