1873 1st ed The Gilded Age Mark Twain American Politics Government Washington DC

“A woman's intuition is better than a man's. Nobody knows anything, really, you know, and a woman can guess a good deal nearer than a man.”

― Mark Twain, The Gilded Age

Appearing in more than 100 editions, this lesser-known Twain novel is his only work in which he collaborated with another author. “The Gilded Age” has become synonymous with materialism and the corruption, greed, and selfishness amongst mankind, particularly in Washington D.C.

Originally published in 1873, very few printings include the 1873 dated title page.
