Notes

Inscribed by the author on the second blank, "Truly yours, Mark Twain, Dec /08". Uncommon inscribed, with five other copies traced at auction. Clemens often signed works under both his pseudonym and as Clemens; this novel is the only work to be published under the alternate pseudonym of Louis de Conte. Originally published as a serial in Harper's Magazine in 1895, it was first published in book form in 1896; this is a later printing, attractively bound.
