New York : Charles L. Webster and Company 1885
First edition of Mark Twain’s masterpiece. Octavo, original publisher’s decorated green cloth gilt to the spine and front panel, with 174 illustrations by Edward Kemble. A near fine example with just a touch of rubbing. Laid in is an original pen and ink drawing by Edward W. Kemble, titled in pencil in another hand, “The Pirate Chief carries off Sweet Marie,” pin-holes, light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. With “88” on p 13 and “with the was” on p 57. As to issue points resulting from damaged plates (e.g. the dropped “5” on p 155, present here), Kevin MacDonnell concludes, “they are of no significance in determining the sequence of the printing of the sheets. All of these occur at random in relation to each other within copies of the first printing, a strong indicator of the use of multiple plates, and possibly mixed sheets within the collating process” (“Huck Finn among the Issue-Mongers,” Firsts, Vol 8, No 9, Sept 1998, pp 28-35). A very sharp example of this literary highspot.

First British edition of the author’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “To Bobby from his devoted friend and admirer, Harper Lee March 14, 1962.” Some foxing to the page edges, the inscription a little blurred, an excellent example in the original dust jacket with light shelfwear. The recipient’s parents were head of the day-to-day operations of Barnett Insurance Agency in Monroeville, which was closely associated (and shared office space) with the law firm of Barnett, Bugg and Lee, which Harper Lee’s father, A.C. Lee, helped found. Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. Examples with such warm inscriptions are rare.
