Notas Bibliográficas

The handsome Heritage Press edition of one of Mark Twain's best books. With 44 evocative illustrations by Thomas Hart Benton, many of which are colourplates, others include sepia plates and drawings within the text. Tall 8vo, in the original blue buckram lettered and decorated on the upper cover and spine in black and gilt xxviii, 418 pp. A very handsome copy of this appealing edition, the text-block is clean, the binding solid and sound, the hinges tight and strong, the blue cloth without wear and with gilt bright, the spine panel very slightly mellowed. A PLEASING, ILLUSTRATED, AND AFFORDABLE EDITION OF ONE OF MARK TWAIN'S BEST BOOKS. LIFE ON THE MISSISSIPPI is a brilliant firsthand account of the steamboat age, the science of river piloting, and the life of the river itself from the point of view of those who made their living navigating it.
The book is also an account of the changes of time, both to a man and to a way of life. The first part of the book recounts Twain's youthful days as a steamboat pilot before the American Civil War. Later in the book Twain recounts a trip along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans many years after the war, taken by a now mature and successful author.
The book is also an account of the changes of time, both to a man and to a way of life. Thomas Hart Benton's illustrations capture the spirit of Twain's 19th century home and muse -the great Mississippi - while being very different from the familiar illustrations found in James R. Osgood's original 1883 publication. LIFE ON THE MISSISSIPPI is a truly wonderful book and a valued piece of the American legacy.
