The Quaker City Holy Land Excursion, An Unfinished Play
Mark Twain, Samuel Langhorne Clemens
Donald Knoepfler has hand-set this book in 12 point Baskerville type and printed it on Mohawk paper, using the original wood engravings, in an edition limited to 150 numbered copies signed by the engraver John De Pol, this one being #133. A fine, bright copy with only minor traces of use;
The original of this unfinished manuscript remained until 1927 in the possession of the C. H. Webb family. It was then acquired by M. Harzof, a New York bookseller, who comissioned to have it printed in a 200 copy edition. Prior to distributing it however, Harzof ordered most of the books destroyed. As a result, only a small number of these 1927 copies have survived. This edition is the limited edition published almost 60 years later.
