The Innocents Abroad sold over 70,000 copies in its first year and remained the bestselling of Twain's works throughout his lifetime. And no wonder — it shows the great author at the height of his powers as he records his trenchant, often hilarious, observations of people and places (Tangier, Marseilles, Paris, Venice, Rome, Constantinople, etc.) he saw while touring Europe and the Holy Land in 1867. Serious passages alternate with jocular chapters, and Twain's humor takes a particularly satirical turn toward the tourists who rely upon travel guidebooks rather than their personal impressions to define their travel experiences. Includes all the charming line illustrations that appeared in the original edition.
