Description: 1935 1st., 1935. Four pp. photos and illustrations. New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1935. First edition. Selections from the '30 to 40' previously unpublished commonplace books in which Twain (1835-1910) recorded his observations and experiences over a 40 year period that extended up to the last few years before his death. These pocket-sized notebooks, manufactured according to a design patented by Twain, featured an 'ear' at the top corner of each page which, when torn off, allowed the book to be easily opened to the next blank page. A novelist and short story writer who first met Twain at a club dinner in New York in 1901, Albert Bigelow Paine (1861-1937) became Twain's biographer and moved in to the Clemens home in 1906. Following Twain's death in 1910, Paine was named his literary executor, and had complete control over Twain's unpublished writings. Blue cloth binding, with gilt decorations. Jacket a bit edgeworn, with a half-inch chip to the top of the rear panel, and some mild foxing, principally to the spine; otherwise an especially crisp, very good copy. BAL 3556; McBride, W.: Mark Twain: A Bibliography of the Collections of the Mark Twain Memorial and the Stowe-Day Foundation, p.276. Bookseller Inventory # 014700
Near Mint Quality. A Rare find from an Estate Sale. Compare to ABE Books $250.00
