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. A few reading marks within, discreet rubber stamped name to half title, faint erasure to reverse side of f.e.p., spine toned, frayed/chipped to spine ends, acceptable wear to covers. 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 #66515
