[Book #19133P] Salthaven. MARK TWAIN, W. W. JACOBS.


London: Methuen, 1908. First Edition. Publisher’s cloth; front hinge cracked; slight page staining; very good plus in a custom clamshell box. Presentation copy; inscribed on the half-title by Jacobs, “To Mark Twain with the author’s compliments. Oct. 1908.” With the “S.L. Clemens - 1908” signature inside the front cover. Below the inscription, Twain has written, apparently in passing the book on to someone else, “It’s a delightful book. Mark. Bog House, Bermuda, March/10. I have read it about 5 times. The above verdict stands.” Apparently, Twain found Chapter V especially praiseworthy. On two pages he has annotated the text with over 90 words. There are numerous small ink corrections throughout the text, likely by Twain.
