Default A Neat Find at Goodwill

The book is Edward Connery Lathem (ed.), *Mark Twain's Four
Weeks in England 1907* (Mark Twain House & Museum,
Hartford, CT, 2006), 10.5H x 8.1W, 226 p., in unread
condition, paste on cartoon from Punch on the front cover.
It chronicles Twain's trip in June and July 1907 to
England to receive an honorary doctorate from Oxford. The
research appears comprehensive. It seems that every
newspaper article in the US and UK during that time is
reproduced here, along with anything Twain said, together
with all the photographs and newspaper cartoons and
caricatures that could be found. The editor has an essay at
the start of each section setting the context for what
follows.

In dem Lande der Pygmäen
gibt es keine Uniformen,
weder Abzeichen, noch irgend welche Normen,
Und Soldaten sind dort nicht zu sehen.

from In dem Lande der Pygmäen
