Innocents Abroad

by Twain, Mark

The Innocents Abroad, also known as The New Pilgrims’ Progress, was written by American author Mark Twain, and first published by the American Publishing Company in 1869. The humorous travel book follows the voyage of Mark Twain and his fellow travelers on a retired Civil War ship titled the USS Quaker City. While traveling through Europe, Egypt, and the Holy Land, Mark Twain critically (but comically) examines both his tourist shipmates and the tour guides he encounters throughout his travels. While also famous for such novels as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Innocents Abroad was Mark Twain’s bestselling book during his lifetime.

First Edition Identification and Notes

The first edition of Innocents Abroad was published by American Publishing Company in Hartford Connecticut in 1869. Sales of the novel, including pirated editions, quickly rose to over 200,000.

The Innocents Abroad is an autobiography, of Mark Twain and his cruise through Europe and the Holy Land. Twain is very descriptive of life in each of the countries he visits, and the people's attitudes toward Americans at that time. He is a self taught and knowledgeable 19th century American. His descriptions of life in Europe and the Holy Land at that time are informative. Not being treated nicely, very often, by Europeans, he expresses his criticisms of European ways. His attitudes toward women are typical of that time period. In writing about the going about everyday doings, the lack of computer convenience is seen. It is interesting learning about him, and life at the time of this book. I suggest that people reading this book, keep in mind the time period, when reading about his attitudes toward others. I love his writing talent.
