Description

Decorative Binding, Publishers' Original Binding

Presenting this anthology of short stories by noted American author, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, or better known by his penname, Mark Twain.

Including 'The £1,000,000 Bank Note', 'Mental Telegraphy', 'A Cure for the Blues', 'A Petition to the Queen of England', and more. 

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was an American writer, humourist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the greatest humourist the United States has produced, and William Faulkner called him 'the father of American literature'. His most well-known works are 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' and 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'. 

This work contains the ink signature of a previous owner to the front pastedown: 'J.L. Dells'.
