Sketches, New And Old - 1st Edition/1st State
Boston: American Publishing Company, 1875. 1/2 Leather. First Edition; First Printing. 8vo. A most attractive, unrestored First Edition/first state copy, in the scarce original publisher's 1/2 Morocco leather binding with gilded pages and peach end papers in near fine condition, front end paper cracked at hinge, hinges tight and fully intact though. Includes the rare inserted notice on page 299 denying Mark Twain's authorship of the piece. All points present as per BAL 3364; Twain's sixty-three often outrageous sketches, composed between 1863 and 1875. From a piece about the difficulty of getting a pocket watch repaired properly to thoughts on bureaucrats, courts of law, the profession of journalism, the claims of science, and the workings of government.
