CUTE LITTLE BOOK FULL OF WISDOM AND HUMOUR
on 28 April 2003
This cute little book was bound with handcraft methods and contains lovely illustrations by Gary Undercuffer. It is an excellent collection of humorous and uplifting quotations, the funny and the profound side by side, gathered from his novels, short works, letters and speeches. These sources include Joan of Arc, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Tramp Abroad, Huckleberry Finn, Life on the Mississippi, The Gilded Age, Europe and Elsewhere, Letters From The Earth and Elsewhere and others. Twain's observations are timeless and often very witty, as in the quote: "Classic: A book which people praise and don't read." Besides its novelty value to collectors as a miniature edition, I think this little book makes an excellent gift.
