ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN
New York: Charles L. Webster & Co, 1885. First Edition. Octavo; G+/No jacket; Green spine with gilt; Green cloth boards with pictorial illustration; Wear to the edges and spine; Fraying beginning at corners and along spine and edges; Some toning to pages, especially at edges; Binding sturdy; 366 pages; VW Consignment, Shelved case 2 NOTES: True first edition in green boards, with many of the most important first state points, including on page 13: "him and another man" listed incorrectly as page 88; Page 57, line 11 up: "...with the was..."; Frontispiece: cloth under bust visible & "Heliotype" imprint. Other Points: Copyright notice is bound, not tipped in; Page 283 has 'vertical fly' in illustration; Page 155 has last '5' slightly larger than other numbers. While these may indicate a second state, Ahearn notes that "Only pages 13 and 57 are important because the others were put in at random before publication, which seems to us to say that different states don't matter because they all occur before publication." Dupont.
