The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Twain, Mark

"Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood . [and] let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys." - Grolier American 100 Books Original blue cloth. 19th-century stamps of Otis Fish on endpapers. Inner hinge neatly restored, spine ends expertly touched up. A very handsome copy. Half morocco case. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (on wove paper and with half-title and frontispiece on different leaves). The great wisdom and sparkling wit of Twain's masterpiece Tom Sawyer is legendary, and every reading reminds us of the treasures buried in its pages: "If he hadn't run out of whitewash, he would have bankrupted every boy in the village. . He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it - namely, that in order to make a man covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to obtain. . Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do, and that Play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do." "Tom Sawyer was the first printed story of a boy in which the hero was recognizable as a boy throughout the whole narrative . until Tom Sawyer was written, nearly all the boys of fiction were adults with a lisp, or saintly infants, or mischievous eccentrics . in the work of Dickens there were hints of boys that were boys; but Tom was the first full blown boy in all fiction . the book is a landmark" (Booth Tarkington). Tom Sawyer is among the most difficult of the great 19th-century American novels to obtain in collector's condition.

London: Chatto and Windus, 1876 Octavo. Original red cloth with border and cover design blocked in black and lettering in gilt, cream coated endpapers. Housed in a blue quarter morocco solander box. The true First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. Oxford conferred an honorary doctorate on Twain in 1907, three years before his death, an honor grander than any he ever received in America. BAL 3367.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket.

TWAIN, Mark; (CLEMENS, Samuel L.)

Hartford, Conn.: The American Publishing Company, 1876. First American Edition, First Printing TWAIN, Mark. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Hartford, Conn.: The American Publishing Company, 1876. First American edition, first printing, with the following points: printed on wove paper and half-title and frontispiece printed on separate leaves (with verso of half-title and recto of frontispiece blank) and all six fly-leaves on laid paper. Square octavo (8 3/8 x 6 1/2 inches; 213 x 166 mm.). [6, blank], xvi, [17]-274, [1], [1, blank], [4, publisher's advertisements ("Revised December 1st, 1876.")], [6, blank] pp. Wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous wood-engraved text illustrations by True Williams and others. Pages, 215/6, 243/4 & 245/6 with tiny pieces (1/4 x 1/8 inch max) torn away from upper corner. Some expert and very small repairs to inner hinges, some light stains to rear endpapers just affecting last two blank fly-leaves. Some light occasional marginal soiling, but still an excellent copy. Original blue vertically-ribbed cloth decoratively stamped in black and gilt and lettered in gilt and blind on front cover and spine. Back cover decoratively stamped in black with publisher's device stamped in black in the center. Original peach endpapers. Head and tail of spine and corners expertly and almost invisibly strengthened, small abrasion with loss of cloth (1/8 inch square) on rear cover, gilt on spine a little dull. Neat early ink presentation inscription on the front free endpaper, dated Dec 25th/76. Even with the aforementioned issues this is still an exceptional copy of the very rare first issue of this classic tale. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case. "Turning away from the adult corruption and humbuggery which he had satirized in The Gilded Age, Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood. The irresponsibility, the love of odd adventure, and the sense of natural justice as opposed to the village code, which characterize the heroes of this book and its sequel Huckleberry Finn, presented a sharp contrast to the Sunday School or rags-to-riches literature which was then the common fare doled out to children. For once, the natural rights of the small boy were set forth by a great writer who remembered his own childhood, when he had indeed inveigled some boys into whitewashing a fence for him, given pain-killer to his cat, teased his brother unmercifully, and continually sharpened his wits in devising ways of escaping punishment. These books let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys" (Grolier, 100 American). "The book was published during December 1876 although application for copyright had been made as early as July 21, 1875; copies were not received for entry at the Library of Congress until January 2, 1877. The [first] English edition [published by Chatto & Windus, London] was published on June 9, 1876, about six months before the American edition was put on sale" (Peter Parley to Penrod). BAL 3369.

The adventures of Tom Sawyer

TWAIN, Mark

Hartford: The American Publishing Co, 1876. FIRST EDITION. Wood-engraved frontispiece and half title printed on separate leaves, and numerous wood engravings by True Williams and others. Lovely full blue morocco with gilt borders, spine in compartments decorated in gilt; an excellent copy. First printing, first issue, with all issue points noted. Featuring one of the best-loved characters in American fiction, we join Tom with his well-known incidents of the whitewashed fence, his love affair with Becky Thatcher, and the trial of Injun Joe, all evocative of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his youth. A somber undercurrent is threaded through the high humor and brazen nostalgia of the story, which highlights the dichotomy of the innocence of childhood and the inequities of the realities of adulthood in this Midwestern town: base emotions and fallacies, murder and retribution, starvation and slavery. The adventures of Tom Sawyer was continually adapted for film and television. Lauded as the "Father of American Literature," Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his most-used pen name, Mark Twain, is a hallmark of classic American literature. Known for his famous work, The adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain is known for his radical civil rights views and often-censored subject matter. His works run the gamut from novels, to collections of letters, to humorous stories about nineteenth century steamboat culture. Also included is a "FIRST DAY OF ISSUE STAMP AND ENVELOPE, Hannibal, MO., Feb. 13, 1940, 9-am." Inside the envelope is a pictorial post card depicting the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn statue in Hannibal, MO. Both are in the original condition, as new.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Twain, Mark [Samuel L. Clemens]

London: Chatto & Windus, 1876. First edition. Fine. First edition, preceding the American edition by six months. A Fine copy in a Cosway-style binding (by Bayntun-Riviere) with a miniature painted by Stanley Hardy. All edges gilt, silk-moire end-papers, original cloth covers and spine bound into the rear. Minor wear to three of the bands now expertly and invisibly repaired. Otherwise without fault. Housed in a cloth slipcase. One of the classic American novels, Twain's bildungsroman follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer - and his friend Huck Finn -- in St. Petersburg, Missouri told with Twain's characteristic and unmatchable wit and humor. It would become his best-selling book and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel of all time. "Mr. Samuel Clemens has taken the boy of the Southwest for the hero of his new book… and has presented him with a fidelity to circumstance which loses no charm by being realistic in the highest degree, and which gives incomparably the best picture of life in that region as yet known to fiction." (Contemporary Atlantic Monthly Review). Fine.

The second printing of the first edition--issue A, printed on laid paper, with frontispiece printed on verso of half-title page and first page of contents on verso of preface. Publisher's catalogue "Revised December 1st, 1876". This second printing was published on the same day as the first printing. Bound in the original blue cloth covers decorated in gilt and black. Profusely illustrated with 162 wood engravings, 160 of them by True Williams, whose drawings for the book were approvingly called "rattling pictures" by Twain. Seven of the illustrations are neatly hand-colored; the coloring is subtle and appropriate--so much so that at first I had come across a rare copy with original professional hand-coloring. But, alas, not so. The book is clean and tight; the cloth and its decoration are very bright--some minor color leaching on the front cover. On the front free endpaper is the signature of Lucretia C. Lennig, with her Philadelphia address and the date, April 1877. Lennig was a Mayflower Descendant, a Magna Charta Dame, and a Daughter of the Cincinnati--as well as the owner of this book. On the whole, a very attractive copy of this landmark of American literature.. First Edition. Hardcover. Collectible-Very Good+. Illus. by True Williams. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.

Bodine, Aubrey A.

Published by A. Aubrey Bodine, 1952. Original photoprint by Aubrey Bodine. Printed on the bottom left corner is 'Chapel, U of Md.' with Bodin's characteristic signature across the lower right corner. The photograph was taken in 1952, before there were trees planted around the chapel. The dimensions are 10.5""x 13"". A. Aubrey Bodine (1906-1970) was a photographer for the Baltimore Sun's Sunday Sun Magazine, also known as the brown section, for fifty years. Bodine is known for iconic images of Maryland landmarks and traditions. He attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. Bodine's books include My Maryland, Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater, Face of Maryland, Face of Virginia, and Guide to Baltimore and Annapolis. Bodine insisted on doing all of his darkroom work, using an extensive knowledge of techniques to modify photos. 'Choptank Oyster Dredgers' won first prize, as the best black and white picture in the 1949 Popular Photography contest which attracted 51,038 entries. The next year's contest drew 53,554 entries and Bodine's 'Early Morning Charge' won second prize.

Attractive bookplate, green boards in very good sturdy shape. Dust Jacket/Wrapper intact and in good shape. Book Details "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is a popular 1876 novel about a young boy growing up in the antebellum South. The story is set in the town of "St Petersburg", inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up. In the story's introduction, Twain notes: Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred; one or two were experiences of my own, the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individualâ€"he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew, and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture · Title: The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer · Author: TWAIN, Mark · Binding: Hardcover · Publisher: Grosset & Dunlap · Place: New York · Date published: 1920
