by Twain, Mark

Condition: Very Good

New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1924. Hardcover. Very Good. With an Introduction by Albert Bigelow Paine. Two volumes. Frontispiece portraits. An early printing, with the K-Y code on the copyright page. "When Twain died he left behind a huge mass of unpublished autobiographical writings, as well as the portions of his autobiography that were published in The North American Review in 1906-1907. Twain's concept of autobiography was a mixture of remembrance and commentary of current events, and he ignored chronology, employing a sort of proto-stream-of-consciousness style. Paine edited this collection of Twain's more amiable musings" (from Kevin MacDonnell's Collecting Mark Twain). Original blue cloth binding, with gilt stamping. A very good set.
