New York: Harper & Brothers, 1904. First American Edition. Item #790
First Printing. Octavo; publisher's red 'V' cloth, with with titling and decorative elements stamped in ivory and colors on spine and front panel; 89pp. Corners gently tapped, though still sharp, otherwise a bright copy, notably absent both the typical spine darkening and flaking to the artwork and lettering; Near Fine, lacking the scarce dustjacket. Twain's hilarious take on religion and the Book of Genesis, and a highly underrated book in the author's canon. BAL 3480.
