The Mysterious Stranger


Author: Mark Twain

1st Printing with Harper code K-Q on copyright page. Harper & Brothers 1916.

Front cover has some small dings and marks. Cloth is tattered at top and bottom of spine. There is wear along the edges and pretty heavy wear on the corners. The hinges are sound with just a little separation at the front after the free endpaper and at the back between the last page of text and the free endpaper. On the front free endpaper there is a previous owner’s signature, shown in the images. The tissue guard, between the first color plate and the title page, is pretty heavily foxed, and consequently the color plate is moderately foxed, and there is some foxing to the inner top portion of the title page. There is scattered light foxing throughout, mostly in the gutter and some along the tops of the pages. All color plates are present. The first plate, after the frontispiece, is solidly attached over the top half, but unattached over the bottom half.
