The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Please Note: This rare 1937 1st edition copy has a loose title and copyright page, but the rest of the book is intact and quite solid.

Set in sixteenth-century England, Mark Twain's classic "tale for young people of all ages" features two identical-looking boys—a prince and a pauper—who trade clothes and step into each other's lives. While the urchin, Tom Canty, discovers luxury and power, Prince Edward, dressed in rags, roams his kingdom and experiences the cruelties inflicted on the poor by the Tudor monarchy.
