    Barry Moser's Pennyroyal Illustrations for "Huck Finn" -- One of Only Twenty-Five Intact Sets Signed by the Artist

    [Pennyroyal Press]. [Barry Moser]. A Suite of Signed Illustrations from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. West Hatfield, [Massachusetts]: 1985.

    Complete suite of forty-nine original wood engravings by Barry Moser from the Pennyroyal Press edition of Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one of 50 such sets, of which this is number 13, with each sheet numbered and signed by Moser in pencil.

    Each sheet measures 15 x 11.25 inches, printed on Rives BFK. Signed illustrations and a color title page are all laid into a beige cloth and quarter gilt-stamped green morocco clamshell case. Minor fraying to cloth on back of case. Fine.

    One of twenty-five sets assembled from a total edition of fifty impressions printed on Rives BFK paper, each signed and numbered by Moser. Twenty-five sets were sold intact and laid into quarter-leather boxes, accompanied by an additional title page. The remaining twenty-five sets of prints were available for sale individually.

    A stunning achievement in illustration, by one of the masters of contemporary wood engraving.

    Dwyer, Pennyroyal 40.
