Vintage copy of The Prince and The Pauper by Samuel L. Clemens/Mark Twain


A vintage copy of The Prince and The Pauper. 

- Mark Twain's real name is Samuel L. Clemens. You don't often see Twain books with Samuel listed as the author, but this one does. Makes it unique! 

- No date listed on the inside, though my guess is around the 1920s going by the book's construction. 

- Hardcover

- Used, in fair condition. The color of the cover has faded to a pale green and there is some wear on the edges and corners. There are a handful of discolored spots. See photos for condition. 

- Has that lovely old book smell (though not overpowering) 

Synopsis from Goodreads:
This treasured historical satire, played out in two very different socioeconomic worlds of 16th-century England, centers around the lives of two boys born in London on the same day: Edward, Prince of Wales and Tom Canty, a street beggar. During a chance encounter, the two realize they are identical and, as a lark, decide to exchange clothes and roles--a situation that briefly, but drastically, alters the lives of both youngsters. The Prince, dressed in rags, wanders about the city's boisterous neighborhoods among the lower classes and endures a series of hardships; meanwhile, poor Tom, now living with the royals, is constantly filled with the dread of being discovered for who and what he really is.
