Life on the Mississippi
Boston: James R. Osgood, 1883 FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE, in the original deluxe binding. The first state has the illustration of Twain's head and urn in flames at page 441 and the "St. Louis" caption on p. 443. Twain's wife Livy had objected that the illustration, which came at the end of a chapter on cremation, was "morbid." In the second state the illustration is lacking. This is a very appealing copy of Twain's autobiographical narrative of his days as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River. BAL 3411. Original three-quarter calf gilt, deluxe publisher's binding. Minimal wear. A fine copy.
