About This Item

This self-styled "nephew" of Mark Twain was actually his third cousin, twice removed, but nevertheless made a career of editing and publishing sentimental, scholarly questionable works about Samuel Clemens such as "Gold Rush Days with Mark Twain" (1930), "Mark Twain and Mussolini" (1934), "My Cousin Mark Twain" (1939) and "Young Sam Clemens" (1942), along with editing the "Mark Twain Quarterly" upon its establishment in 1936 and founding the International Mark Twain Society. Partly-Printed ADS, 1p, 6¼" X 2 3/4", Kirkwood, Missouri, 1967 January 15. Check drawn on the First Security Bank in Kirkwood on pale blue stock, filled out and signed entirely in Clemens' large, bold hand in black fineline, made out to John Dos Passos in the amount of five dollars. Usual red inkstamped cancellation. Near fine. DOS PASSOS (1896-1970) was the prolific American novelist best known for his "U.S.A." trilogy. He boldly endorses the check on the verso in blue ballpoint. An interesting pairing of literary figures.
