Lovely First Edition of Mark TwainMark Twain. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885.
First edition with the following first issue points, per BAL: "Him and another Man" with "88" on p. ; "with the was" instead of "with the saw" on p. 57; final leaf blank; and frontispiece with "Heliotype Printing Company" and visible tablecloth. Also, "Huck Decided" instead of "Huck Decides" under "Chapter VI" on p. , a first issue point per MacDonnell (Firsts, p. 31). Title page a cancel; p. 283 on a stub. The final "5" on p. 155 is lacking, a later issue point in BAL which MacDonnell dismisses as being of no significance as far as issue priority (Firsts, p. 33). Octavo. 366 pages. Portrait frontispiece. Text illustrations by E. W. Kemble.

A near fine copy showing some professional conservation work.
