Item Description: Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 8vo. 2 pages (two separate leaves, on laid paper watermarked "Keyston Linen"; traces of mounting on versos). Enclosed in a 1/2 brown morocco slipcase and folding chemise. To William Dean Howells: "G. Grist' is George Iles. It is a good squib, but I don't know whether it is suitable or not. You will know. I suppose you pigeon-hole a thing sometimes against the final day of publication - a day most unlikely in our lifetime, I do assure you. Come to think, I am in an odd position for a valuable author. If I should write a book, I couldn't publish it in under ten years, It ever." Clemems then goes on to report that he had seen Mrs. Howells and Howells' daughter and almost accompanied them down to Boston for a visit. At this point in his career, Clemens had immersed himself in business matters (most notably the ill-fated backing of the Paige typsetter) to the exclusion of most literary activities. One relative minor endeavor was his assistance in the completion of the much-delayed anthology "Mark Twain's Library Humor," anonymously edited by Howells and published by Webster in 1888. It is to this work which he no doubt alludes with his suggestion for the inclusion of Iles' sketch. An apparently unpublished letter, unrecorded in the Union Catalogue of Mark Twain Letters. Howells (1837-1920), American novelist, editor, critic, poet, and long-time friend of Mark Twain. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 601291

Item Description: Charles L. Webster & Company, New York, 1885. Hardcover. First Edition. Original decorated green cloth. With 174 illustrations by E. W. Kemble. BAL 3415: With first issue points of pages 13, 57, and 143; second issue of title page, frontispiece, and page 155; and fourth issue of page 283. Also with McBride's first issue point on page 143. 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. Nineteenth century pink paper bookplate on the front pastedown with the word "Wing" and the number "1783." Hinges fine; some rubbing to gilt on the spine and a little to the cloth, mostly to the rear cover. Contents lightly foxed. Light wear to spine tips and corners. Very Good or better.

Item Description: New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Kemble, Edward Windsor (illustrator). 1st Edition. Illustrated with 174 illustrations by Edward Windsor Kemble. First edition, with many of the first issue points, including: cancel title leaf with the copyright notice dated 1884 (second state), the illustration "Him and Another Man" listed as page 88 on page 13, "with the was" on page 57, page 283 in the third state with a straight fly on a cancel leaf, third state page 155 with the final five larger than the first, page 161 lacking the signature mark, leaf 238 pasted under the terminal endpaper, frontispiece in the second state with no tablecloth visible and with Heliotype Printing Company imprint. Publisher's decorative green cloth, with an illustration of Huck Finn to the front panel in green and gilt, lettered in green and gilt, pale peach endpapers. Near fine, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, mostly to bottom edge, bright spine, clean boards, minor split to the paper hinge inside the front cover, binding sturdy and hinges secure, former owners' inscriptions to the front pastedown, a few faint spots to the page edges, else fine. Overall, a fresh and sturdy unsophisticated copy. Housed in a custom black moiré slipcase. BAL 3415. This copy of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of the first American editions issued in a green cloth binding. Other bindings for this title include blue cloth, library (sheep) binding, and deluxe (half morocco) binding. While most copies of Huckleberry Finn in all binding variants have a third state title leaf, as "no copy of the published book has been seen, or reported, with the copyright notice dated 1885," this copy has the second-state title page - a cancel leaf that preceded the third-state conjugate leaf, indicating that it may be an earlier issue than the copies with the title leaf in the third state. Additionally, this cloth bound copy contains the definitive issue points on pages 13 and 57, as well as nearly all of the issue points found in cloth copies, with the exceptions of pages 155 and 283; notably, page 283 is usually found in the third state in cloth bindings, and the uncorrected illustration with the curved fly is found almost exclusively in the sheep-bound copies and BAL notes that "no examined copy of the published book has the defaced plate" indicative of the second state. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a pseudo companion novel to Twain's highly successful Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876); although both are set in the antebellum South, Tom Sawyer is the tale of a young boy's mischievous adventures, while Huckleberry Finn involves a disenfranchised youth's moral dilemmas about social conflict. Huckleberry Finn is a youth who runs away from his alcoholic father and befriends Jim, a run-away African-American slave seeking freedom in the North. The dialog of the text features local dialects drawn from Twain's experiences living in the South. When it was first published in the United States in 1885, Huckleberry Finn was highly scrutinized and was banned by several libraries. Interestingly, the text was banned not for its saturation of racist vocabulary and prejudiced world-views, but for its depiction of criminal, lower class white Americans. Although it continued to be challenged in the 20th century for its depiction and treatment of African-Americans, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn remains one of the Great American Novels. Indeed, Ernest Hemingway proclaimed that it was the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.". Bookseller Inventory # MT070

Item 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
