The suite of prints and the book are, in turn, in a slipcase of matching oatmeal cloth, also fine. The extra suite of signed prints is not called for in the colophon limitation, so I am not sure how many of these were made. A respected dealer onlne indicates that there were four copies with this extra suite. Bookseller Inventory # 3934

Item Description: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: 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.

Item Description: Charles L. Webster and Company, New York, 1885. First American edition, first issue. First American edition, first issue. Illustrations by E. W. Kemble. 1 vols. 8vo. Earliest Presentation Copy of the Published 'Huck'. Presentation inscription from Clemens to his agent Pond on the front fly leaf: "To Major J.B. Pond, with the affection of Mark Twain Feb. 21/85".Clemens had planned a sequel for 'Tom Sawyer' (1876) almost immediately, yet the book required nearly a decade of great effort before he found his way. 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' was intended for simultaneous publication in America and in the British territories in December 1884, but the defacement of the Uncle Silas plate altered the production schedule for the American edition. A dozen pre-publication copies were hastily bound in green cloth in December 1884 to secure copyright, and Clemens presented a copy bound in sheep to his wife at Christmas.Publication day for 'Huck' was 18 February 1885, in a first printing of 30,000 copies: in green or blue cloth ($2.75), sheepskin library binding ($3.25), or in a deluxe half morocco binding with marbled edges ($4.25). Clemens had been on a highly successful reading tour with George Washington Cable, and wrote Webster from Indianapolis (in a letter dated 8 February) "You know I read in Brooklyn Feb. 21 - I shall want to see you at the Everett that day ? You can bring a Huck Finn in a nice binding ?" In other correspondence leading up to the New York visit, Clemens repeats his request for copies. He was in Saratoga on 20 February before coming to New York City. Webster had to have brought the present copy in the deluxe binding to the Everett Hotel, where the author inscribed it to the impresario for the reading tour, Major James B. Pond. On the leaf opposite, Pond later recalled the circumstances of the inscription when he gave the book to his son in 1897 ? "the great Twain-Cable combination under my management ?'Mark' showed me the book, & asked me if I wanted it, Yes, said I, I would very much prize the first copy of one of your books ?"The book sold well although early critical response was hostile. The book's reputation has grown, and Ernest Hemingway famously declared: "All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain."A landmark presentation copy of the greatest American novel of the nineteenth century.
