The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn

by Twain, Mark

Commonly named among the Great American novels, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written by Mark Twain, is generally regarded as the sequel to his earlier novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; however, in Huckleberry Finn, Twain focused increasingly on the institution of slavery and the South. Narrated by Huckleberry “Huck” Finn in Southern antebellum vernacular, the novel gives vivid descriptions of people and daily life along the Mississippi River while following the adventure of Huck and a runaway slave, Jim, rafting their way to freedom.

First Edition Identification and Notes

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was first published on December 10, 1884 by Chatto & Windus in London and by Dawson Brothers in Montreal. 

Other Collectible or Notable Editions

Charles L. Webster and Company, run by Twain’s nephew, Charles Webster, published the first American edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 1885. This version, which is also the first illustrated edition, features 175 plates by E.W. Kemble.
