The First Edition has this very collectable second edition antiquarian book for sale, Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad, the 2 volume book set which is in the original cloth and was published by Chatto and Windus in 1880.

The original binding is green with black decorations to the front boards, back boards and to the spines, with gilt lettering to the spines.  Volume 1 is in Very Good condition with corner knocks; knocks to the top and bottom of the spine; and light marks.  Volume 2 is in the same condition.

Volume 1 has 328 numbered pages, edges untrimmed, with blue floral endpapers on a white background, with a frontispiece of Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) smoking a pipe beneath which is a facsimile signature of Mark Twain.  The pages are in overall Very Good condition with a name in a neat hand applied to the top of the Title Page from a previous owner.

Volume 2 has 304 numbered pages plus 32 pages of advertisements to the end of the book.  The endpapers are also of a blue floral design on a white background.  Pasted onto the page opposite the Title Page is a contemporary rare newspaper article of Mark Twain’s famous speech in German given at Vienna on 31st October 1897.  The title of the newspaper article is: “Mark Twain’s Great Achievement Speaks in German at Vienna” and reads (in part): “Mark Twain last night received a splendid ovation from the literary world of Vienna at a “festkneipe”, a sort of free and easy banquet given by the “Concordia” Association of Writers and Journalists.”  It was during Mark Twain’s tour of Europe that it was misreported that he had died to which an amused Mark Twain famously quoted as saying: “The report of my death was an exaggeration.”  

This is an exceptionally collectable book for Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad that will make a magnificent addition to any Mark Twain book collection, or Antiquarian book collection.
