1892 1st/1st American Claimant TWAIN Samuel Clemens Beard Illustrated FAMOUS

“Nothing breaks up an author’s progress like having to stop every few pages to fuss-up the weather. Thus it is plain that persistent intrusions of weather are bad for both reader and author.” –Mark Twain, The American Claimant ‘The American Claimant’ is an 1892 novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. This comedy of mistaken identities is a classic tale of “greener grass”. According to Twain himself, “No weather will be found in this book. This is an attempt to pull a book through without weather.” This would be the first American fictional work to attempt to employ this method. Including the frontispiece, this example has 24 line-drawings by Dan Beard. This would be the second Twain novel to be illustrated by Beard, the first one being ‘A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court’ (1889). Twain was so enamored by Beard’s artistry, that he gave him creative freedom to interpret the text as he pleased. $350.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!

1865 1ed History of CUBA Havana Columbus Voyages Cuban Pedro Guiteras Spanish

A rare first edition of “Historia de la isla de Cuba” by Pedro Guiteras. The first volume covers a geographical description of Cuba, its topography, character and customs of the aboriginal settlers, agriculture and industry, the discovery of the New World, and the voyages of Christopher Columbus, and ends with the taking and occupation of Havana by the English in 1762 to 1763. The second volume ends in the government of Tacón in 1838. The first volume managed to circulate in Cuba, but the colonial authorities banned the second, in which Guiteras issued judgments contrary to absolutist governments. It was still popular as represented by the famous Cuban essayist Fernando Ortiz remarks, “There is no other history of Cuba, which, like that of Guiteras, could best represent the Cuban ideology of its time, constituting a strong plea for the freedom of this nation …. Guiteras brought to light forgotten facts, which his ancestors believed to be infertile or overly significant; took the historical studies of Cuba beyond the simple external chronicle of events often inconsequential, for the first time in Cuban historiography, the development of our people was intimately linked with the rest of world life “.
