Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894) is a novel by American writer Mark Twain. Its central intrigue revolves around two boys—one, born into slavery, with 1/32 black ancestry; the other, white, born to be the master of the house. The two boys, who look similar, are switched at infancy. Each grows into the other's social role.

Roughing it | Mark Twain
post image

My mom just sent me three more of my Dad‘s books. This was one of them, and looks like it‘s been...roughing it. Really cool to find my dad‘s inscription inside and these two cards stuck inside the pages. Apparently both sites are still standing and Mark Twain once spoke at the opera house. that saloon‘s name though 😂 !!

LauraJ That is so freakin‘ cool! 1mo
LeahBergen Fantastic! 😍😍 1mo
JazzFeathers This is so awesome! 4w
ValerieAndBooks @lauraj @leahbergen @jazzfeathers it was neat that I talked with my mom after discovering the ephemera inside, and she was telling me that they both went back there about 25 years ago (the 1960 visit was just my dad; he hadn't met my mom yet). Then my hubby said he was at that saloon with his family as a kid! Think now I have to visit for myself someday 🙂. BTW the book itself is in good condition; it's the cover that isn't. 4w

I love pictorial works that detail someone‘s library. That should be no surprise, and I highly suspect I‘m not the only one in this group who feels the same way! This is a collection of American classic authors‘ homes, including library images. Perfect armchair travel, though the book is a bit oversized. #LibraryOfCongress #SoaringScores

LiteraryinLititz I love seeing people‘s home libraries too! 1mo
Cinfhen Would love to flip through this book 🤩 1mo
