Chicago: Mark Twain Association of America, 1942. First edition. Five "travel" letters by Twain published in the Journal 1853 - 1855, beginning when he was just 18 years old. One of 300 numbered copies, this one being out of series (i.e., unnumbered). 8vo light blue stapled paperwraps printed in dark blue; illustrated with photographs of Twain's brother, Orion Clemens (frontis), who was "part-owner, part-editor" of the Journal during the period in which the letters appeared, and of Orion's home in Muscatine, Iowa, where Twain also stayed for a number of months; 28 pages. Stamps of the now-defunct "Twainian" Research Foundation of Perry, MO, to front cover, title page, and colophon. Otherwise, very good to near fine with slight toning to cover edges, most noticeably along rear spine fold. Quite scarce.
