Very good original brown cloth. First issue, with Moses the caption on the frontispiece. Gilt tramp on the front cover is bright, and the gilt title and decoration on the spine a little less so. Rebacked professionally, with new endpapers. Some minor edge wear, and cloth corners have been touched up. BAL 3386. No prior owner marks. Now protected in a clear, mylar sleeve. Twain and his family spent long vacations in Europe, and he did not like all the formality and uppity manners that he saw. He was feted as a famous American author, and his wit does not repay European hospitality. So it is still a very good read. The last page is an ad for his first travel book, The Innocents Abroad, which was his first big hit.
