Reader's note

Beautiful and green and complete with slip case! This wonderful book from publisher Folio, adds a real touch of class to any bookshelf! Full of Mark Twain's excellent short stories (or sketches as they were referred to) and wit, this 'Treasury' would make a great addition to any vintage library! The following is taken from 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County' - "Well," Smiley says, easy and careless, "He's good enough for one thing, I should judge he can outjump any frog in Calaveras county." The feller took the box again, and took another long, particular look, and give it back to Smiley, and says, very deliberate, "Well, I don't see no p'ints about that frog that's any better'n any other frog." "May be you don't," Smiley says. "May be you understand frogs, and may be you don't understand 'em; may be you've had experience, and may be you an't only a amature, as it were. Anyways, I've got my opinion, and I'll risk forty dollars that he can outjump any frog in Calaveras county." - find out how this one ends! The perfect gift!
