8o (193 x 133 mm). Frontispiece (dated 1906) and 2 illustrations. Original red cloth (spine faded, covers a little soiled, ends of spine a trifle worn, front inner hinge cracked).

FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE, INSCRIBED BY CLEMENS in brown ink over the title and sub-title (on title-page): "This book is dedicated to a noble human success & proved she is another General for God [probably a sarcastic reference to Mary Baker Eddy] -- Augusta E. Stetson. Sincerely Yours. Mark Twain. 1907." Johnson/Clemens, pp. 87-89; BAL 3497. Christian Science is Twain's hilarious lambasting of Mary Baker Eddy.
