American Humorists: Mark Twain (Item #: 2356)

Rev. H. R. (Mark Twain) Haweis

Originally published by Funk & Wagnalls, February 12, 1883, but not published separately by them. Exactly one month later it was published by John Alden. Elzevir Library, Vol. No. 21, March 12, 1883. The first separately published biography of Twain. Quite uncommon in wraps.

The front and rear halves of the folded cover have split in two. The rear half stays connected to the text by the string, but of course is delicate. Otherwise it is in very nice condition.
