The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. (Tom Sawyer's Comrade).

London: Chatto and Windus, 1884. [Literary classic] FIRST UK EDITION. Octavo, pp.xvi; 438 [34]. Catalogue dated October 1884. With 174 wood-cut illustrations by Kemble. Publisher's red cloth with gilt titles and black decoration to spine and upper. Publisher's brown foliate endpapers. Presented in a black quarter morocco clamshell box, with gilt titles to spine, matching cloth over sides, and a fleece lining. Contents shaken within case, with some minor repairs to inside paper joints. Blind W.H. Smith & Son stamps to frontis and title page; a purple monogram stamp also to half-title. Occasional light thumbing and marking, otherwise a clean copy. Light wear only to boards, with toning to spine, and wear to head and tail. Very good. Following the classic 'boy's own' adventures of the promising young gent Tom Sawyer, Twain here attempts a more mature, somewhat darker picture of a less privileged American childhood on the mighty Mississippi. Regarded by many as a cornerstone of American literature, it confronts issues such as slavery in a sympathetic yet humorously sardonic tone which belonged to Twain alone. Item #63833
