“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

― Mark Twain

 

Mark Twain and his works were immensely popular all on their own. Such notable characters as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn stood out above other 19th-century literary characters, and not just in the United States. One of his lesser-known works is a social commentary entitled ‘Following the Equator’. This travelogue expresses views of racism, religious intolerances, and social oppressions prevalent in the British Empire.

 

This rare first edition includes the first print point on page 161. See below.
