Three rare early editions of famous Mark Twain novels

Condition: Very good
Language: English
Edition: Multiple Books / Editions
Author: Mark Twain
Number of Books: 3
Publisher: Chatto & Windus
Binding: Hardback

1. "The American Claimant", by Mark Twain

Chatto & Windus, London - 1892 edition - 257p, 14cmx12cm - in good condition; in blue original boards with gilding; frontispiece + tissueguard present

The American Claimant is an 1892 novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. Twain wrote the novel with the help of phonographic dictation, the first author (according to Twain himself) to do so. This was also (according to Twain) an attempt to write a book without mention of the weather, the first of its kind in fictitious literature. Indeed, all the weather is contained in an appendix, at the back of the book, which the reader is encouraged to turn to from time to time. The American Claimant is a comedy of mistaken identities and multiple role switches. Its cast of characters include an American enamored of British hereditary aristocracy and a British earl entranced by American democracy.

2. "The Innocents Abroad" by Mark Twain

Chatto & Windus, London - 1899 edition - 605p, 14cmx12cm - condition: good, with frontispiece + tissueguard

The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress is a travel book by American author Mark Twain published in 1869 which humorously chronicles what Twain called his "Great Pleasure Excursion" on board the chartered vessel Quaker City (formerly USS Quaker City) through Europe and the Holy Land with a group of American travelers in 1867. It was the best-selling of Twain's works during his lifetime, as well as one of the best-selling travel books of all time

3. 'Tom Sawyer Abroad", by Mark Twain

Chatto & Windus, London - 1894 edition - 208p, 15cmx13cm - condition: in blue boards, with some wear, with original frontispiece (minor paper loss at page top), with tissueguard. Collectible copy.

Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain published in 1894. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of adventure stories like those of Jules Verne.

    The tracking number clearly stated that it was attempted to be delivered at your home in August, but you were not home. After a while, the French postal service has returned to me, the seller. I have contacted you that I was more than willing to return it to you upon payment of shipping costs, but I have never heard back from you. I can not do more as a seller at this point, and the criticism is unfounded.

    De boeken waren geleverd zoals beschreven. De schade aan de dust jacket en het boek waren beschreven dus dat zou u moeten verwachten. Bovendien heb ik ook nooit iets gehoord van u, waardoor ik niets heb kunnen ondernemen. Dus uw commentaar is onterecht
