SAMUEL L. CLEMENS(1835 - 1910) "Mark Twain", American author of such classics as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Excellent, very early S.P., 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (sight), a carte de visite image of the author as a young man, ca. 1865-70, boldly signed in his typical blue-purple ink: "Yrs truly Saml L. Clemens Mark Twain". Bottom corners rounded, a few tiny foxed spots, else very good to fine. Double matted and framed, not examined out of frame. Clemens is especially rare in signed images of such an early date!
Estimate $ 3,000-4,000
