Unsure? Ask an Expert!

First French edition of one of the most-recognizable American novels, Mark Twain’s ‘Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ – the first novel Twain wrote entirely by himself (MacDonnell). The opportunity to own a first edition of any Twain is uncommon, but ‘Tom Sawyer’ is the high-spot in many collectors’ libraries. ‘Huckleberry Finn’ also has the same appeal, but ‘Tom Sawyer’ does not carry the controversy like ‘Finn’ does.

 

By the time Mark Twain had passed away, ‘Tom Sawyer’ had gained so much fame and prominence that it was without-a-doubt his most successful and top-selling book. This rare first French edition was published in Paris and translated out of English by William Hughes. The illustrations and vignettes in this edition are from Achille Sirouy.
