    In the Publisher's Original Sheepskin Binding

    First edition, first issue with footnote on page 119 and repeated on 120; "From Hospital Days" sketch on page 299 with erratum slip denying Twain's authorship of the piece (allegedly the piece was written by Jane Stuart Woolsey and was published in her book Hospital Days in 1868). Octavo. 320 pages. Illustrated.

    Publisher's deluxe sheepskin binding with titles stamped in gilt on a black morocco spine label. Five compartments between four raised bands on the spine. Expertly rebacked, with the original spine laid down. Contents slightly toned with minor foxing, otherwise an attractive copy in very good condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
