Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) -
1885 - Charles L. Webster, New York - First Edition, first printing, in earliest state.
‘We catched fish and talked, and we took a swim now and then to keep off sleepiness. It was kind of solemn, drifting down the big, still river, laying on our backs looking up at the stars, and we didn't ever feel like talking loud, and it warn't often that we laughed—only a little kind of a low chuckle. We had mighty good weather as a general thing, and nothing ever happened to us at all—that night, nor the next, nor the next.’
A rare and superb near fine first edition, first print run, earliest state of a quintessential classic of 19th century American literature. Double frontispiece (including portrait), with tissue-guard, and numerous wood engravings throughout.
Housed in custom clamshell case of green cloth.
