[Chicago, 1888. 130pp. plus advertisements. Illus. Quarto. Original pictorial wrappers. Wrappers darkened, bit chipped at extremities, else very good. In half morocco and cloth clamshell box (cloth spotted). This is a fictional account, written by the author of FOR LOVE AND BEARS..., of a trip through the Northwest aboard the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad. The illustrations were executed by True Williams. "True Williams, one of the well-known illustrators of that day...was a man of great talent - of fine imagination and sweetness of spirit - but it was necessary to lock him in a room when industry was required, with nothing more exciting than cold water as a beverage...We may believe that Williams was not a great draftsman, but no artist ever caught more perfectly the light and spirit of the author's text" - Paine, MARK TWAIN. WRIGHT III:1383 (2 locations). (Inventory #: WRCAM14217)
