Octavo, contemporary three-quarter black morocco gilt, top edges gilt. $4800.Handsomely bound set of the writings of Mark Twain..High and fine literature is wine, Twain once wrote, and mine is only water; but everybody likes water. This handsome edition of Twains complete novels, essays and sketches attests to the enduring popularity and power of his works— many of which, despite their authors protestation to the contrary, have come to be regarded as among the finest vintage American literature offers. Among other classics, this set includes A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court, Life on the Mississippi, and the incomparable adventures of both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. To understand America, read Mark Twain (Garry Wills). See BAL 3456. A few printing and paper flaws to about ten leaves in The American Claimant; a few repairs to morocco bindings. A handsome set.
