#586 - Samuel L. Clemens Estimate: $3,000+

Inscribed while in England to receive an Oxford honorary degree

Distinguished matte-finish 5.75 x 7.5 portrait by Ernest H. Mills affixed to its original 7.25 x 9.25 mount, signed and inscribed in ink, "To R. M. Collins, with the kind regards of Mark Twain, July 12/07.” Archivally double-matted and framed to an overall size of 16 x 18.5. In very good condition, with some scratching and heavy silvering to moderately faded image. On June 8, 1907, Clemens sailed from New York for England to receive an honorary Doctor of Literature degree from Oxford University. According to Volume VI of Mark Twain's Letters, this 'was an honor that came to him as a sort of laurel crown at the end of a great career, and gratified him exceedingly.'
