About This Item

E.P. Dutton, NY, 1920. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. "This classic study of the influence of 'the Glided Age' on a major American talent, first published in 1920... has remained the authoritative interpretation of Mark Twain's creative work. Mr Brooks' critical point of view centers on the conflict between prudence and the creative spirit in American culture and on [the] effect this conflict has upon the writer." [Pub. Info] Evolution of Samuel Clemens as a writer from the perspective of a literary critic/historian. Owner name. There are some tears and chipping on the dust jacket. There is a protective mylar cover. Scarce. 1ST EDITION, 2ND PRINTING.
