Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. 1st Edition. Hardcover. First edition, first printing, professionally restored. This copy has the errors that identify the first printing: on page [9] 'Decided' appears in place of 'Decides'; on page 13 the list of illustrations has the incorrect page reference '88'; on page 57 'with the was' appears in error. Twain's bust appears in the Heliotype print. The title page is dated 1885, with the 1884 copyright on the verso. Page 283 has the corrected illustration. On page 58, line 29, the final letter of 'touched' is damaged; as is the final letter of 'would' on page 59, line 11. On page 155 the page number appears as '15'. Page 161 has no signature.  Green cloth publisher's cover. The cover had shown significant wear and tear after over a century, and has been professionally restored, with a one inch tear to the lower front cover repaired, wear to the corners and edges mended, a loose cover reattached, the inner hinges strengthened, and the worst fading subtly recolored.  The gilt on the cover and spine is present but faded in places. The text-block has been reglued and relined. The free front endpaper, the flyleaf, and the title page with Kemble's frontispiece on the verso had their edges damaged, and have been stabilized with Japanese paper. A previous owner's inscription in pencil on the front free endpaper has been erased, although a shadow remains. Very minor foxing and stains throughout. We are happy to answer any questions. Good.
