Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)
Third Printing Very good- in the publisher's original decorated green cloth covered boards with a black on gilt title box on the spine and gilt decorations and black embossing on the front board. The end sheets are the original light tan paper with a small prior owner's stamp on the front paste down. The cloth at the lower tips of the boards and at the head and heel of the spine is worn and rubbed through with the cloth at both the head and heel of the spine fraying. There is also a rent to the cloth of approximately 1/2" at the fore edge of the rear board. The binding is beginning to loosen but both hinges and joints show no cracking or separation. There is however minor separation between the frontispiece and the tipped-in photographic bust of the author. This volume is a third printing based on the revised engraving on page 283 which is bound in. Additional points are as follows: the 1885 title page is not a cancel; the copyright page is dated 1884. Page 13 shows "Him and another Man" correctly listed on page 87. The 11th line from the bottom of page 57 is correctly written as "with the saw" instead of "with the was". The second "5" of "155" on page 155 is slightly larger. Page 283 is not a cancel but a corrected engraving. The fronticeportrait is tipped in with no tablecloth visible. (BAL 3415; Peter Parley to Penrod, pp. 75-76; McBride, pp. 92-121)Our code number = TB22097
