Lot 620: ALS, one page, 5.5 x 8.5, June 3, . Letter to English publisher Andrew Chatto, in full: "Won't you please send me a paper-covered copy of 'Innocents Abroad' & 'Roughing It.'" In very good condition, with scattered creases, various small edge chips and repaired tears, and an ink mark through the center. The referenced books are the first two travelogues written by Clemens. The Innocents Abroad, one of his earliest published works, covered his tour of Europe and the Middle East in 1867, and 1872's Roughing It, a prequel to the former, chronicled his six-year journey from Missouri to Nevada and onward to Hawaii.
