About This Item

Chicago: John C. Winston Company, 1937. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Robert Lawson. Not the Winston edition with the pictorial paste-on, this is copyright 1937 with no additional printings noted. 8vo, red cloth with black illustration and gold shield with black titles, repeated on spine, blue and turquoise illustrated endpapers, color frontispiece, 10 other 2-color full-page illustrations and additional text drawings throughout, 274 pages to include 6 pages of notes at end, preface by Robert Lawson. Condition is VERY GOOD- / no jacket: rubbing to edges and corners, a few small tears at spine head, both front and read hinge are cracked with webbing exposed but the textblock remains tight and is internally clean throughout. Better than all this sounds, and a delightful tale by Twain with Lawson's incomparable illustrations. Uncommon binding.


The Prince and the Pauper is an English language novel by American author Mark Twain. It was first published in 1881 in Canada before its 1882 publication in the United States. The book represents Twain's first attempt at historical fiction. Set in 1547, the novel tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a pauper who lives with his abusive father in Offal Court, London, and Edward VI of England, son of Henry VIII of England.
