About This Item

London: Harper & Bros., 1904. First Separate Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. F. Strothman. Title page reads: London and New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers : : MCMIV. Red cloth boards with yellow title and full color printing of Adam at his journal with 2 monkeys. Seven gatherings with printer's signature marks. Covers soiled from handling. Sunning to spine. Heavy paper with mild foxing on a few pages. 89 pp. Duodecimo, 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches tall. A comic short story of what it might have been like for Adam when the world was new.


A prime example of the wit of Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)...his satire of the book of Genesis, written in the format of Adam's journal. " MONDAY -- This new creature with the long hair is a good deal in the way. It is always hanging around and following me about. I don't like this; I am not used to company. I wish it would stay with the other animals. . . . Cloudy today, wind in the east; think we shall have rain. . . . WE? Where did I get that word-the new creature uses it."
