Item Description: Hartford, Conn.: The American Publishing Company, 1876, 1876. Square octavo. Original blue vertically-ribbed cloth decoratively stamped in black and gilt and lettered in gilt and blind on front cover and spine, back cover decoratively stamped in black with publisher's device stamped in black in the centre, peach endpapers. Blue morocco slipcase and chemise, lettered gilt. Very slight rubbing and/or fraying to corners and spine extremities, inner hinges with some short superficial cracking, still an excellent copy, the cloth bright and fresh. Wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous wood-engraved text illustrations by True Williams and others. First American edition, first printing, printed on wove paper, with the half-title and frontispiece printed on separate leaves (verso of half-title and recto of frontispiece blank). The American edition was published around the beginning of December 1876, preceded by the London edition published in June the same year. Mark Twain had moved to Hartford to work with the publisher Elisha Bliss, Jr. of the American Publishing Company. At the time, Hartford was a publishing centre with twelve publishers, and the town had the highest per-capita income of any city in the United States. Tom Sawyer proved such a success that Twain was able to hire Tiffany to supervise the redecoration of his Hartford house. It also inspired him, somewhat less successfully, to found his own publishing house, Charles L. Webster and Company, which had success with its first two publications, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, but went bankrupt by 1894. BAL 3369; Grolier, 100 American, 79; Johnson, Twain, pp. 27–30; Peter Parley to Penrod, pp. 43–44. Bookseller Inventory # 51871

Item Description: Hartford: American Publishing, 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. "Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood . [and] let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys." - Grolier American 100 Books Original blue cloth. 19th-century stamps of Otis Fish on endpapers. Inner hinge neatly restored, spine ends expertly touched up. A very handsome copy. Half morocco case. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (on wove paper and with half-title and frontispiece on different leaves). The great wisdom and sparkling wit of Twain's masterpiece Tom Sawyer is legendary, and every reading reminds us of the treasures buried in its pages: "If he hadn't run out of whitewash, he would have bankrupted every boy in the village. . He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it - namely, that in order to make a man covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to obtain. . Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do, and that Play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do." "Tom Sawyer was the first printed story of a boy in which the hero was recognizable as a boy throughout the whole narrative . until Tom Sawyer was written, nearly all the boys of fiction were adults with a lisp, or saintly infants, or mischievous eccentrics . in the work of Dickens there were hints of boys that were boys; but Tom was the first full blown boy in all fiction . the book is a landmark" (Booth Tarkington). Tom Sawyer is among the most difficult of the great 19th-century American novels to obtain in collector's condition. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-9553582566

Item Description: London: Chatto and Windus, 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Octavo. Original red cloth with border and cover design blocked in black and lettering in gilt, cream coated endpapers. Housed in a blue quarter morocco solander box. The true First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. Oxford conferred an honorary doctorate on Twain in 1907, three years before his death, an honor grander than any he ever received in America. BAL 3367. Bookseller Inventory # 108082

Item Description: The American Publishing Company, Hartford, Conn, 1876. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. First printing, with the half-title and the frontis illustration on separate leaves, printed on wove paper. Collates complete as per BAL 3369 with the triple fly-leaves on laid paper, front and back, and four pages of publisher's ads following the novel. Only 5,000 copies of this first printing were issued (compared to 30,000 for Huck Finn). A Very Good copy in the publisher's original blue cloth, stamped in black and gilt. Without any repairs to the cloth (which is uncommon). Rear inner hinge professionally repaired, otherwise untouched and in very good shape internally. Chips to the cloth at the spine ends, less than 1/4 of a inch at the top and 1/16 of an inch at the base, some fraying to the corners, otherwise a tidy copy. One of the classic American novels, Twain's bildungsroman follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer - and his friend Huck Finn -- in St. Petersburg, Missouri told with Twain's characteristic and unmatchable wit and humor. It would become his best-selling book and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel of all time. "Mr. Samuel Clemens has taken the boy of the Southwest for the hero of his new book? and has presented him with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction." (Contemporary Atlantic Monthly Review). Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 1580
