Book Description: 1885. (Tom Sawyer's Comrade.) With One Hundred and Seventy-Four Illustrations. New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition of Twain's classic tale of boyhood in mid-19th Century America. HUCK FINN has quite a number of issue points, and in some instances bibliographers disagree on priority; what is generally agreed-upon today, however, is that there are three important issue points (with actual changes of text), plus numerous unimportant issue points (due to variant preliminary leaves supplied from different sources, or due to type-slippage during the print run). This copy has all three "important" issue points in their first state: (1) p. [9]: ".Huck Decided to Leave." is listed as part of the heading for Chapter VI (later changed to "Decides"); (2) p. [13]: "Him and another Man" is wrongly listed as at page 88 (later corrected to page 87); (3) p. 57: ".with the was.", later corrected to ".with the saw.".~For those who care what the unimportant issue points are, they are: (1) frontispiece portrait: "Heliotype," with scarf visible; (2) title page: a cancel, with copyright dated 1884 on the verso; (3) p. 143: "Col." at upper right corner of plate lacks the "l." (type slippage); (4) p. 155: final "5" of page number in a different font (type slippage and replacement); (5) p. 161: signature mark "11" missing; (6) p. 283: corrected plate bound in, as usual.~As for condition, this is a rather attractive, very good-plus copy. There is only the slightest of wear at the binding extremities, a few faint speckles mainly on the lower rear cover, and just a bit of bubbling of the front cover cloth. The cover design remains bright and sharp, and the original pale-peach endpapers remain clean and uncracked; most important, NO restoration has been performed on this book. Blanck 3415; McBride pp 92-110. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 11885

Book Description: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929., 1929. The Stormfield EditionTWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes. Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets with printed paper labels on the spine.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before it's publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267). Bookseller Inventory # 01682

Book Description: Gabriel Wells, New York, 1922. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good Condition. First Edition. Octavo, Paper covered boards with blue cloth spines. Printed paper spine labels. Some of the volumes have chipped edges. Some of the spine labels show wear and fading. Three volumes have discolored areas at the base of the spine. Some mild foxing on the preliminary pages of a few volumes. The fly-leaf was signed by Mark Twain in 1906 in anticipation of the publication of this edition which did not appear until after his death. It is double-signed as Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens and is additionally by Mark Twain's biographer Albert Bigelow Paine. Twain was born during a visit by Halley's Comet which appears every 75 years, and he predicted that he would "go out with it" as well. He died the day following the comet's subsequent return. He was lauded as the " greatest American humorist of his age," and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature." The Definitive Edition, limited to 1,0 2 4 numbered sets, each signed "S L Clemens / Mark Twain". Clemens planned a definitive and complete edition of his works before his death and, to that end, in 1906 signed 1,024 sheets with both forms of his name to be inserted in the first volume of the planned edition. The set was delayed for many years. Bookseller Inventory # 025134

Please email to see a photo. The Definitive Edition has a fascinating story behind it, starting with the collector Gabriel Wells. The signed sheets in this edition had been forgotten about until their discovery in the Harper & Co vaults. Well acquired those sheets as well as the right to publish the set (for which he paid $200,000). He used the illustrations from earlier editions, evidently without permission.

Extra shipping charges will apply for the full-shelf set. [bookseller's note to himself: the signed volume is in the vault.]. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # Fred-Ses39

Book Description: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York; 1882 and 1884. Octavo. Two volumes in original plum cloth (volumes I and II), brown coated endpapers; wear to extremities, but very good overall; half blue morocco clamshell. SIGNED in both volumes by Livy: "Olivia L. Clemens/1882/Hartford". Both are signed in the year of publication. Mark Twain delighted in criticizing and correcting errors in the writings of other authors; apparently, so did Livy. She has corrected an awkward sentence on page 257, in volume III. And she has underlined the words "and is a colossus of gossamer". (page 76, volume IV). Both volumes have the booksellers ticket on the rear pastedown: (Brown & Gross Booksellers Hartford CT). [TOGETHER WITH] Two volumes in original plum cloth (volumes III and IV), brown coated endpapers; wear to extremities, rear inner hinge just starting on volume 3, but very good overall; half orange morocco slipcase. SIGNED in both volumes by Mark Twain, for his wife, Livy: "Livy L. Clemens/1885". Some passages are marked in pencil, including the sentence "Fear nothing but fear". (page 48, volume II). The front pastedowns have Clara Clemens shelf markings and also the 1951 auction markings. What a great association! Both Mark Twain and his wife Livy, loved Thomas Carlyle and his work. Evidence of this may be found in another book from Twain's library, by Moncure D. Conway, entitled Autobiography: Memories and Experiences. It was sold at Sotheby's on June 19, 2003 (the Karanovich copy). Twain wrote in the margin, next to a passage about the marriage of Thomas and Jane Carlyle: "It is as if he (Carlyle) were speaking of Livy, & of me." (volume 2, p. 108).

Book Description: Charles Webster, New York, 1884. Hardcover. Book Condition: VG. First Edition. 8VO. A superior copy of Twain’s masterpiece in an early mixed issue state.
