About Fine condition in the publisher's original decorated reddish-brown cloth covered boards with black decorations, little rubbing and some minute chipping along spine and tissue guard; Told in typical Twain fashion, infants switched at birth reveal their true colors as DNA encoding takes precedence over environment. Set during the early years of the 19th century, this pre-Civil War satire tackles social commentary issues still being debated today. Twain presents the reader with a light-skinned black mother switching her infant with her white master's in order to prevent her own child being raised as a slave. Twain uses humor and irony in revealing seething levels of racism and classicism .
