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.

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.
