£18.00

Product description

Publisher: Chatto & Windus, Picadilly, London, 1889, new edition, with 314 illustrations by W. FR. Brown, True Williams, B.Day and including 'three or four' illustrations by Mark Twain himself 'without outside help'. 564 pages plus 32 pages of publisher's adverts. Many exquisite and humorous b&w illustrations, some full page and the rest within the text. Cover, in decorative red cloth boards with gilt titling and amusing illustrations / decorations in black to spine and front, is in decent, firm condition commensurate with age with fading / darkening to spine, bumping to spine extremities and to corners, an edge tear across top of spine cover and a few grubby shelfwear related marks here and there. Internally the book is in generally sound condition commensurate with age with medium tanning to pages and page block edges and foxing marks here and there. Binding is generally reasonably firm and tight, but hinge at rear endpaper starting to weaken and rear free endpaper is partially detached. Overall the book is generally sound and tight condition. A lovely and sought-after 1889 edition of this great Mark Twain classic with handsomely decorated red cloth cover and 314 superb, amusing and characterful illustrations (highly typical of the book illustration style of the 1880s) both full-page and in the text by W. FR. Brown, True Williams, B.Day and four illus by Mark Twain himself 'without outside help'.
