The Stolen White Elephant

Mark Twain

First Edition

First Printing

1882



The Stolen White Elephant first edition 1882 by Mark Twain is for sale. This is the scarce Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant first edition book which was published in 1882 in London by Chatto and Windus.  Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant conforms to the description in the authoritative bibliography by Merle Johnson A Bibliography of the Work of Mark Twain Samuel Langhorne Clemens published in 1910. According to the Merle Johnson bibliography this UK first edition of Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant was published on June 10 1882 “a day or so previous to the American issue.”


Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant has the original publisher’s red binding which bears an illustration of an elephant to the front board with the title The Stolen White Elephant in gilt, and the spine has an illustration of a lady opening the door to a surgery with animals outside, and the title to the spine also in gilt.  The back board bears the Chatto and Windus logo.


Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant binding is in Very Good condition with the gilt to the front board being very bright after all these years.  However, as with most books well over 100 years old it does have minor faults which includes a mark to the bottom left corner of the front board, darkening to the spine, wear to the top and bottom of the spine, and light marks to the back board.


Mark Twain The Stolen White Elephant has 285 numbered pages plus a large 32 page catalogue to the end of the book dated May 1882 confirming this to be the rare first edition first issue of Mark Twain’s The Stolen White Elephant.  The endpapers have the green patterned design to the front endpapers and rear endpapers.


The pages are in overall Very Good condition with a neat inscription to one of the front blank pages dated Dec 1882; this blank page with the inscription has not been fully opened at the top, and where it has been partially opened has caused a small tear at the top of the page; and light, very small and occasional foxing.
