15. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade): [Complete and unabridged. 174 original illustrations.]

ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. Complete and unabridged. Includes 174 original illustrations and original cover. Crisp text set in modern easily read font. Mark Twain’s characters are surprising, unforgettable and truly human. The character Huckleberry Finn is based on one of Twain’s childhood friends.

Twain writes “In Huckleberry Finn I have drawn Tom Blankenship exactly as he was. He was ignorant, unwashed, insufficiently fed; but he had as good a heart as ever any boy had. His liberties were totally unrestricted. He was the only really independent person-boy or man-in the community, and by consequence he was tranquilly and continuously happy and envied by the rest of us.

And as his society was forbidden us by our parents, the prohibition trebled and quadrupled its value, and therefore we sought and got more of his society than any other boy’s.” It is little surprise then that children are perennially drawn to Huck and his adventures.

The dialogue faithfully reproduces the common speech of his day. Twain explains, “In this book a number of dialects are used, to wit: the Missouri negro dialect; the extremest form of the backwoods Southwestern dialect; the ordinary ‘Pike County’ dialect; and four modified varieties of this last.
