More details about this item

THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER Mark Twain 1876 first edition, second state with all points. Half-title and frontis illustration on the same page leaf. Two blank leaves after the endpaper (missing in this copy); "THE" on the half-title page in smaller type than "ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER;" three blank pages following the four pages of ads in the rear of the book. Copyright date is on the verso of title page and reads 1875. Please view the photographs before considering a purchase. Book has moderate wear and heavy corner edge wear, and the lower 1/4 of spine has been re-glued at edge of the spine, thus preserving it (easily restorable by a qualified restorer). The book opens up so am happy someone thought to do this. (My other copy in my personal collection is missing the half of the spine.) The front endpaper is lacking, and the next blank page has a full page 1932 inscription to Helen by Opie Thatcher (Thatcher family of Ojai, CA). The hinges are cracked and have been re-glued. The spine ends have wear. Interior pages are very good and without smudges or stains as usually found in this book and no loose signatures. The book is a definite candidate for restoration. Not as common as Huckleberry Finn in first edition, in my experience. John Anthony Miller Phantom Bookshop Ventura, CA Add a map to your own listings. FREE Trial!
