(TWAIN, MARK.) The "Mark Twain" - Cable Readings [...] Programme. Original program card for Mark Twain and George Cable in-person reading on "Friday Evening, January 16th, 1885" at the Central Music Hall in Chicago. 5 x 4 1/2 inches, lightly tanned, scalloped corners, removed from scrapbook with remnant from scrapbook mounted to verso under glued newsprint clippings. The readings include 'Advance Sheets' of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ("King Sollermunn").
