First edition. Mark Twain's humorous fantasy novel concerns his Colonel Mulberry Sellers character, an American who has notions of joining elite British society; and Berkeley Rossmore, an Englishman of high birth who wishes to relocate to America. With black & white illustrations throughout by Dan Beard. An interesting aspect of this work is that Twain attempted to write this entire novel without making any references to weather (a goal which was not quite fully achieved). --- In olive cloth with illustrations and decorations in black to cover and spine; gilt-stamped cover & spine titling. Volume has no dust jacket. --- An excellent copy: clean, tightly-bound and well-preserved, though with moderate spine sunning, light chafing to edges of cloth and prior owners' signatures & notations to front free endpaper.; Octavo - 8 to 9 in. tall; 277, (8, ads) pages
