1885 Mark Twain 1st/1st ed Huckleberry Finn Tom Sawyer Adventures CLASSIC



“the most praised and most condemned 19th-century American work of fiction” - Legacies of Genius.



“All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain. Its the best book weve had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing since.” – Earnest Hemingway



Mark Twains momentous book Huckleberry Finn has been the source of arguments, discussion, and controversy since it first appeared in 1885. It has been reprinted countless times and is still considered to be one of the most popular American novels, if not the most popular. This first American printing meets the first edition points according to the BAL (see below).



This example includes various edition points from the earliest of Huck Finn editions, according to BAL. EXTREMELY Rare and valuable!
