Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster, New York, 1885. Zustand: Near Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: No Dust Jacket. First American Edition. Publisher's original green cloth, stamped in gilt and black, with the following early issue points: a. Page 9, "Huck Decided." b. Page 13 "Him and another man" listed as p. 88. c. Page 57 "with the was." d. Page 143 "l" in Col. missing and "b" in body broken. e. Page 155, final 5 is in a different font. f. Page 283 is tipped-in. g. Title page is tipped-in, and copyrighted in 1884. h. Frontis is tipped-in, cloth not visible. SIR HUGH WALPOLE'S COPY, with his inscription stating that this is one of his top five favorite books and that he purchased it from the legendary Los Angeles bookman, Jake Zeitlin, on September 4, 1934. THE SECOND EARLIEST KNOWN, OF DATED PRE-PUBLICATION COPIES (1884) the 1884 gift inscription is to S. W. Field, one of the founders of Santa Cruz, California and it was he who was appointed the first police chief in 1867. The early issue points above and this 1884 gift inscription, show that this copy is a pre-publication copy and second earliest known of the first American copies issued; the earliest is the Charles L. Webster copy, which is dated November 26, 1884 and sold at Christie's in 2004 fro $265,000; tied for second place is Livy Twain's copy, also dated Christmas 1884, and sold at Sotheby's in 1991 for $99,000. Moreover, it is one of the very few association copies of Huck Finn we have seen, given it's connection to Sir Hugh Walpole and to the legendary bookseller, Jake Zeitlin. The New York Herald of 29 November, 1884, quotes Charles Webster as saying, "But 250 copies left the office [for California] ." The present copy is, doubtless, one of those copies. It is important to note that the next earliest dated copies share virtually the same issue points as our copy: (a). The Smillie copy of Huck Finn is dated Feb. 19, 1885. The Smillie copy is like our copy in every point, except the frontis cloth is visible. But the frontis was an added item, tipped into the book and therefore cannot be a guide to priority (Clarke). The Smillie copy is example #13 in the McBride bibliography. (b). The Drapkin copy of Huck Finn is dated Feb. 23, 1885. It is like our copy in every point, except the frontis cloth is visible; again, this point is not a guide to priority. Also page 155 lacks the final 5, whereas our copy has the final 5 in a larger font. But, according to Underhill, he had acquired a copy on April 30, 1931, which had the final 5 "stamped in" by hand, and which matched the original font. Underhill concluded that would leave only two states of p. 155 as it was published: with the final 5 of the wrong font, or with the final 5 absent. So, let us conclude that our copy of Huckleberry Finn is, in significant points, like the earliest dated copies, and that our copy, dated Christmas [December] 1884, is one of the very few early, dated copies. NOTE: In mid-December, 1884, Estes & Lauriat announced that Huckleberry Finn was ready and for sale by them at a reduced price. Twain filed a law suit and settled months later (30,000 copies were already bound in December, 1884). A fresh, bright copy, with occasional light foxing to preliminaries and front inner hinge with a minor repair. Housed in a custom pictorial green clamshell box, with the front panel design, similar to that on the book. BAL 3415. McBride, p. 92-123. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 08232

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster & Company, New York, 1885. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. Publisher's library binding of full sheep, the scarcest of the bindings for this title, here very skillfully rebacked retaining the original leather spine labels. With 174 illustrations by E. W. Kemble. BAL 3415. Earliest issue for four points of BAL's seven points and with McBride's point. Recent Twain scholarship convincingly establishes three changes from the printing plates of the first printing of 30,000 copies and later printings: 1) an erroneous page reference "88" on page 13 later changed to "87" (BAL's point 2); 2) the misprint "with the was" on page 57 later corrected to "with the saw" (BAL's point 3); and 3) the misprint "Decided" on page 9 later changed to "Decides" (not noted by BAL). This copy has all three first printing points as well as most of the earliest points for BAL, lacking only the conjugate title page and having the conjugate page 283 with the vertical fly and the frontispiece with the credit to Heliotype but without the scarf. Hinges tight. Internally a very clean copy and very unusual as such. Light wear to corners, faint tape stains to boards. Near Fine. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 003426

Beschreibung: New York Charles L. Webster 1885, 1885. First edition. First Issue. With 174 black and white illustrations by E.W. Kemble. Large 8vo, original publisher's sheep binding with the red and black lettering labels on the spine. It is estimated that only 2500 copies were issued in this binding. 366 pp. A very pleasing and handsome copy. Light, expert and unobtrusive refurbishment to the joints. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND GREATEST BOOKS IN AMERICAN LITERATURE. A very handsome copy with the following earliest setting states as listed by BAL: "Him and another Man" is listed at page 88, BAL's first state; page 57, eleventh line from the bottom reads ".with the was.," BAL's first state; page 155 with final 5 "stamped in" by hand (see Underhill), and matching the original font in the setting of the page number (no priority, occurring randomly in all three states independent of other major signs of first printing sheets, but this setting seems to appear least often); the portrait frontispiece is in BAL's first state, "heliotype" imprint on the portrait frontispiece, title page with 1884 copyright on verso, p.9: the heading for Chapter 6 reads "Decided" (later corrected to "Decides"), p.143: "I" in "Col." (line 1) missing and "b" in "body" (line 7) broken, p. 161: signature mark "11" is missing, final leaf is a blank. Very rare with this many first issue points. The sheep bindings are generally in poor condition, but this copy is still quite nice. Along with Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn is considered the stepping stone to modern American literature. And along with Tom Sawyer, for the first time, the hero of the novel was a boy. These books are landmarks and Hemingway often offered his opinion that the modern novel would have been impossible without them. With Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and Melville’s Moby Dick, they provide us with a view of America transcending its past and beginning its future. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 8529

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Hardcover. Zustand: Collectible: Very Good. First Edition. Publisher's original 1/2 leather, with page edges, pastedowns, and endpapers all marbled. One of just 500 copies printed (Raptis Rare Books, internet article, March 2014). ///LAID in is a hand written response, declining an invitation, on a folded Quarry Farm labeled note, dated "Sept. 17/03", and SIGNED, "S. L. Clemens". (Quarry Farm was the home of Susan Langdon Crane, sister of Mark Twain's wife Olivia, and often the summer residence of the Twains. Mark Twain wrote, at least in part, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn while at Quarry Farm). The note sheet was created with a fold to yield 4 writing surfaces although this message is confined solely to the letterhead panel; The note was then manually folded, horizontally. It was written 5 weeks prior to the Twain family leaving for Italy and was penned during the last summer they spent together at Quarry Farm, as Olivia died in Italy the following June. ///CONDITION OF THE NOTE: Very good-near fine, with a touch of toning, faint soiling, two miniscule specks on the letterhead panel, the faint horizontal crease, and light peeling on the rear panel where it had been affixed to some other surface. ///CONDITION OF THE BOOK: The spine and corners have been professionally restored (corners still showing the bumped tips) and the marbled surfaces have some scratches and nicks. Interior condition problems: 1.) The pastedown/endpaper hinges have been reinforced, 2.) the front endpaper has a 1/8"x1/4" upper corner chip, 3.) there is scattered light foxing on the front and rear the preliminary pages, 4.) leaves 3-18 have areas of (food?) staining heaviest on page 17 with bleeding back to the copyright page and finally vanishing on page 36, 5.) the bottom corner of page 23-24 has a 1/2"x7/8" chip. 6.) the rest of the text has occasional soiling, some perimeter stains, a few tipped corners, one dog-eared page, and most pages have light perimeter toning. ///ISSUE POINTS: The tissue guarded front plate is second state with no cloth visible under the bust. The title/copyright leaf is integral (lack of uniform opinion on this point), "Him and another man" is incorrectly listed at page 88 (instead of page 87 where it appears), page 57 has "with the was" on line 11 from the bottom, page 143 is missing the "l" in "Col." (which is part of the illustration at the top line of the text) and has the broken "b"in "body" on line 7, the final 5 of page 155 is lacking (again, lacks consensus), the illustration on page 283 is bound in with the noticeable curve on the fly of Silas Phelp's trousers, and the final leaf is blank. ///OVERALL: in spite of the aforementioned flaws, this is a very good and quite scarce 130 year old volume. Several of these leather bound copies are in university and library collections, while others have surely been destroyed or lost, leaving precious few for private collections. Signed.

Beschreibung: New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885, 1885. First American Edition of "Huckleberry Finn," First PrintingA Near Fine and Untouched CopyTWAIN, Mark. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). With one hundred and seventy-four illustrations. New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885.First American edition, with the following "traditional" bibliographical points: the title-page is a cancel, with the copyright notice dated 1884 (BAL second state, with the first state only noted in publisher's prospectuses and advanced sheets); p. [13], the illustration captioned "Him and another Man" is incorrectly listed as at p. 88 (BAL first state); p. 57, the eleventh line from the bottom reads "with the was" instead of "with the saw" (BAL first state); p. 283 is a cancel, with the engraving redone and the line indicating the fly on Silas Phelps's trousers a straight vertical line (BAL third state, the earliest known to appear in cloth-bound copies of the book); p. 155, the final "5" in the pagination is missing (BAL first state); the frontispiece portrait has the imprint of the Heliotype Printing Co. and the tablecloth, or scarf, on which the bust rests not visible (BAL second state). Octavo (8 7/16 x 6 9/16 inches; 210 x 167 mm.). 366, [2, blank] pp. Inserted frontispiece portrait and wood-engraved text illustrations. Complete with the final blank leaf (signature 23/8).Original dark green cloth pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt and black on front cover and spine. Original pale peach endpapers. The absolute minimum of rubbing to corners and spine extremities. Tiny tear (1/4 inch) in the lower blank margin of leaf 7/1 (pp. 97/98). Occasional very minor marginal soiling. An exceptionally bright and totally untouched copy. Chemised in a quarter olive morocco over marbled boards slipcase."In November [1884], after the first printing was finished and before the second printing of 10,000 copies was begun (the third printing of another 10,000 copies did not follow until March, 1885), the plates were corrected to reflect three changes in the text: at page 13 the erroneous page reference '88' was changed to '87'; at page 57 the misprint 'with the was' was corrected to 'with the saw'; and at page 9 [the 'Contents' leaf] the misprint 'Decided' was corrected to 'Decides.' This last change was overlooked by Johnson, BAL, and every other bibliographer, but was noted by the Iowa-Berkeley editors of HUCK FINN. Because these three changes are documented as having been made between the first and second printings, they can absolutely distinguish the first and second printing sheets from each other. While mixing of sheets can sometimes occur during the collating or binding process, no copy of HUCK FINN has been found that does not have all three of these changes present, or all three absent. That strongly suggests that no mixing of first and second printing sheets took place. Unlike those changes made between the two printings, the corrections made to the plates during the course of the first printing are of no use in distinguishing between the two printings?By early November, the sheets of HUCK FINN were being forwarded for binding, and within a week or two it was discovered that the illustration at page 283 had been altered in the master plate to make it appear as if Uncle Silas was exposing his penis?By the time the ribald alteration (that's BAL's term, not mine) was discovered, the first printing was finished, and some sheets may have been in bindings, some sheets had been gathered and sewn, and some were collated but not yet sewn?No copies of the book, in cloth or in leather, show clear evidence of having had page 283 cancelled after binding. All surviving copies that contain the cancelled page, when closely examined, show evidence that the cancel took place after the sheets were sewn, but before they were nipped and trimmed for casing into the binding?In addition to the obscene illustration, a change was made in the plate for the copyright page, correcting the copyright date f.

Photogravure portrait frontispiece (second state, with the imprint of the Heliotype Printing Company and with "Karl Gerhardt, Sc." added to the finished edge of the shoulder), illustrated throughout with 173 text illustrations after E. W. Kemble. First US edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the publishers to Daniel Whitford, Clemens's lawyer: "To Daniel Whitford, with regards of the publisher, Chas. L. Webster. New York, February 21st, 1885." Daniel Whitford, attorney for New York firm Alexander & Green, acted for Webster & Company and was also retained by Clemens several times. He acted for Clemens in the highly publicised lawsuit over the dramatisation of the Prince and the Pauper by Abby Sage Richardson. In 1890, Clemens and the producer, Daniel Frohman, were sued by Edward H. House, who claimed that Richardson's adaptation was plagiarised from House's dramatisation of the novel, written for Clemens years before. Frohman paid House from Clemens's royalties to prevent the closure of the play; in turn, Clemens sued Frohman for his royalties (amounting to five or six thousand dollars) in 1894. Much bibliographical confusion has been generated by Huckleberry Finn. In fact, only three substantive changes were introduced after the first printing: at p. 13 the erroneous page reference "88" was changed to "87"; at p. 57 the misprint "with the was" was corrected to "with the saw"; and at p. 9 the misprint "Decided" was corrected to "Decides". This copy has all these in first state. The frontispiece was printed separately, inserted at random, and has no relation to the order of the printed sheets. At some stage it was realised that the Uncle Silas illustration on page 283 had been mischievously tampered with. In this copy, the illustration is in second state. Copies in the original half morocco binding are the least often met with. Less than two weeks before publication, the publisher Webster announced that he was binding 20,000 copies in cloth, another 2,500 in sheep, and 500 copies in half morocco. Webster's own copy, also half morocco, was dated by him as having been received from the binder on 26 November 1884.

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster and Company, New York, 1885. Zustand: Near Fine. First American edition. A beautiful copy in the publisher's green cloth, stamped in black and gilt. Contains the three first printing points: "Huck Decided" on p. 9; "Him and another Man" listed on p. 88; and "with the was" on p. 57. The other leaves were assembled at random and have no bearing on whether a copy is first or second printing, although variant states exist. A very nearly Fine copy with bright gilt and a tight page block. Very slight wear at the spine ends and corners and a small ding at the top of the front board. Without repair or work of any kind. On the whole, an excellent copy of the book that Hemingway claimed was the source for all modern American literature and "the best book we've had." BAL 3415. MacDonnell, 31. Recounting the adventures of Huckleberry Finn as he flees his own abusive father and aids Jim in his escape from slavery, Twain's novel has been praised for its "distinctly American voice," putting at its center two common people who find an uncommon friendship. "Today perhaps the novel's greatest significance lies in its conception of childhood, as a time of risk, discovery, and adventure. Huck is no innocent: He lies, steals, smokes, swears, and skips school. He accepts no authority, not from his father or the Widow Douglas or anyone else. And it is the twin images of a perilous, harrowing odyssey of adventure and perfect freedom from all restraints that so many readers find entrancing" (Mintz). A metaphor for a young and rebellious nation, as well as its individualist inhabitants, Huckleberry Finn defies genre by being simultaneously an adventure story, a road novel, a coming of age tale, an expression of nostalgia for the expansive natural spaces lost to industrialization, and an exploration of race and class. Listed on the American Scholar 100 Best American Novels and one of the 100 Best Novels Written in English. Near Fine. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 1860

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster, 1885. Hardcover. Zustand: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. A very good first edition, first issue in the rare sheepskin binding which has been recased with a new spine. Housed in a custom-made collector's clamshell case with a leather spine. First edition. First Issue. With 174 black and white illustrations by E.W. Kemble. Large 8vo, original publisher's sheep binding with the red and black lettering labels on the spine. It is estimated that only 2500 copies were issued in this binding. 366 pp. A very pleasing and handsome copy. Light, expert and unobtrusive refurbishment to the joints and new matching spine. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND GREATEST BOOKS IN AMERICAN LITERATURE. A very handsome copy with the following earliest setting states as listed by BAL: "Him and another Man" is listed at page 88, BAL's first state; page 57, eleventh line from the bottom reads ".with the was.," BAL's first state; page 155 with final 5 "stamped in" by hand (see Underhill), and matching the original font in the setting of the page number (no priority, occurring randomly in all three states independent of other major signs of first printing sheets, but this setting seems to appear least often); the portrait frontispiece is in BAL's first state, "heliotype" imprint on the portrait frontispiece, title page with 1884 copyright on verso, p.9: the heading for Chapter 6 reads "Decided" (later corrected to "Decides"), p.143: "I" in "Col." (line 1) missing and "b" in "body" (line 7) broken, p. 161: signature mark "11" is missing, final leaf is a blank. Very rare with this many first issue points. The sheep bindings are generally in poor condition, but this copy is still quite nice. Along with Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn is considered the stepping stone to modern American literature. And along with Tom Sawyer, for the first time, the hero of the novel was a boy. These books are landmarks and Hemingway often offered his opinion that the modern novel would have been impossible without them. With Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and Melville’s Moby Dick, they provide us with a view of America transcending its past and beginning its future. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 1308149

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster And Company 1884/85, 1884. Hardcover. Zustand: Near Fine. First American Edition; First Printing. A professionally restored and rebound First American Edition from the very limited sheep skin covered first print run. This copy, meticulously rebound in a copy of the original boards (also included as verification of the book's original state), with finish matching the original and with red and black morocco spinal labels. Water stain to the lower inside corner along bottom edge, of the first 75 pages, about 3 inches by 1 inch at front, diminishing as pages advance. tanned page edges, no chips and not brittle. All points as for a true first edition first printing: Title-page bound in; page 57 "was for saw"; Illustration Index "him and another man" listed on page 88; page 155 lacked the final 5 of the page number which was corrected and restruck with an elevated and larger type set "5"; page 283 is bound-in, in the first state with Silas Phelps's trousers showing a definite curve; Frontis is state 2 with the imprint of Heliotype Printing, table cloth and table not visible and the artist's name on the edge of the bust; copyright page dated 1884; page 143 with "l" missing from "Col." at top of illustration and with broken "b" in "body" on line seven. This is the very rare first state of Huck Finn that is seen only in a few of the leather bound copies of the book (of which this is one) that were issued before the "pornographic" illustration on p. 283 was discovered. These leather-bounds, needless to say, are now prized collector's items"[Freedman, The First Edition of Huckleberry Finn: An Overview in Proteus, Fall, 1984].Copies of Huckleberry Finn in the original publisher’s leather bindings are quite rare. "The relative rarity of the cloth and leather bindings is clear. Speculatively, shortly before publication, Webster announced that he was binding 20,000 copies in cloth, another 2,500 in sheep, and 500 copies in three-quarter leather. Copies bound in leather dried out, cracked apart, this copy being one, where the spine broke off leaving only the boards attached (again, these are included).

Beschreibung: Charles L. Webster and Company, New York, 1885. First edition, first issue of Mark Twain's masterpiece. Bound in contemporary full blue morocco by Bayntun Riviere, Cosway-style binding with Mark Twain portrait medallion under glass, fleuron cornerpiece designs within gilt frames, raised bands, gilt decor to the spine, front and rear panels, all edges gilt, front cover and spine faded slightly, front joint repaired, wide gilt turn-ins, silk moire endpapers. An exceptional example. Subscribers who had already purchased Tom Sawyer, and wanted a binding to match, were invited to request a blue cloth binding on Huckleberry Finn instead of the publisher's green. This is one of those blue bindings--twenty times more rare than the green. This copy has all of the commonly identified first issue points (copies were assembled haphazardly by the printer and there is yet to be agreement among bibliographers as to the priority of many points). First issue points include page [9] with "Decided"; p. [13], illustration caption incorrect and p. 57 ("with the was"), p. 155 (final 5 absent), all first states; and p. 283 state 4. BAL 3415; Peter Parley to Penrod, pp. 75-76; MacDonnell, Firsts, vol. 8, no. 7/8, 1998, p. 31. Twain initially conceived of the work as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer that would follow Huckleberry Finn through adulthood. Beginning with a few pages he had removed from the earlier novel, Twain began work on a manuscript he originally titled Huckleberry Finn's Autobiography. Twain worked on the manuscript off and on for the next several years, ultimately abandoning his original plan of following Huck's development into adulthood. He appeared to have lost interest in the manuscript while it was in progress, and set it aside for several years. After making a trip down the Hudson River, Twain returned to his work on the novel. Upon completion, the novel's title closely paralleled its predecessor's: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). Twain composed the story in pen on notepaper between 1876 and 1883. Paul Needham, stated, "What you see is [Clemens'] attempt to move away from pure literary writing to dialect writing." For example, Twain revised the opening line of Huck Finn three times. He initially wrote, "You will not know about me", which he changed to, "You do not know about me", before settling on the final version, "You don't know about me, without you have read a book by the name of 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'; but that ain't no matter." The revisions also show how Twain reworked his material to strengthen the characters of Huck and Jim, as well as his sensitivity to the then-current debate over literacy and voting. Ernest Hemingway once declared about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, "All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain. It's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing since.". Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 18030
