Description


This 125th Anniversary edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is expanded with updated notes and references and a selection of original documents—letters, advertisements, playbills—some never before published, from Twain's first "book tour" to promote its original publication. This is the only edition of Twain's masterpiece based on his complete manuscript, including the 663 pages found in a Los Angeles attic in 1990. It includes all of the illustrations commissioned by Mark Twain, historical notes, a glossary, maps, and selected manuscripts.

"The Mark Twain Project and the University of California Press are reuniting Samuel Clemens's texts with the essential illustrations he commissioned for them, and the results are splendid: may the Twain never again be sundered!" 
— Vanity Fair
