by Eldred's

July 30, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

East Dennis, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: INTERESTING LOT OF ITEMS PERTAINING TO MARK TWAIN Consists of a rare photo titled "Mark Twain at his old home, Hannibal" depicting Twain in a white suit standing in front of a house. Purportedly this was taken in 1902 during Twain's last visit to his boyhood home in Hannibal, Missouri. Silver gelatin print mounted on board, print 4.75" x 4". Unframed. Lot also includes a handwritten letter by Twain's middle daughter, Clara Langhorne Clemens Samossoud, a photograph of Laura Hawkins Frazer serving tea in Mark Twain's home in honor of his birthday, and a newspaper article "Mark Twain's Mother As 'Becky Thatcher' Knew Her". Frazer was a childhood friend of Samuel Clemens and was the real-life inspiration for Tom Sawyer's love interest Becky Thatcher. The newspaper article is based on an interview with Frazer in which she describes her relationship with Twain and his mother. Together with three books: 1) Mark Twain A Biography: Volume 1 by Albert Bigelow Paine (Harper & Brothers, N.Y., 1912). 2-3) Volumes III and IV of The National Portrait Gallery of Distinguished Americans. Inscribed on fly "Wm. B. Hawkins from Mother Dec. 25, 1885" as well as "Elijah Hawkins"; they are believed to be relatives of Laura Hawkins Frazer.

Lengths from 8.25" to 28.5". William Abbott Willard spent nearly his whole life in Hartford, Connecticut, where he lived in a house with Mark Twain as his neighbor on one side and Harriet Beecher Stowe on the other side. He gained a wide reputation for his hobby of carving canes as gifts for friends and relatives to commemorate the events of the day, both personal and historic. He often carved cane handles in the forms of distinguished gentlemen's heads, and he usually added an inscription explaining the occasion the cane commemorated. Most of his canes were carved from twigs he gathered on the grounds of Mark Twain's property, and he presented many to Twain and Stowe. Provenance: The Morgan Rank Collection of Folk Art and Musical Instruments.
