Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)
New York, Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885., 1885. First Edition, earliest state of the cloth issue, now finely rebound in full green morocco, with the original cloth covers preserved at rear. Large octavo, pp366. Illustrated throughout. Internally clean save for the occasional thumbmark, portrait is creased with an old (discreet) repair to rear. Binding features raised bands to spine with gilt titles and decoration, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With the following issue points confirming this as one of the initial cloth copies: p.13: the illustration captioned "Him and another Man" is listed, wrongly, as at p.88; p.57: the eleventh line from the bottom reads: "...with the was..."; p.155: with the final five lacking; p.161: lacks the signature mark 11 at the bottom of the page. In addition, the portrait frontispiece has the tablecloth, or scarf, clearly visible. The contentious 'bulging fly' plate (p.283) was only included in publisher's leather copies and is therefore not pertinent to cloth copies. A fine copy of a rare printing. Blanck [3415]. BMC No261, p.90-93.
