Overall, a lovely copy of this early edition of Twain's classic work, in the same format as the first edition. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a pseudo companion novel to Twain's highly successful The Adventures of Tom Sawyer ; although both are set in the antebellum South, Tom Sawyer is the tale of a young boy's mischievous adventures, while Huckleberry Finn involves a disenfranchised youth's moral dilemmas about social conflict. Specifically, Huckleberry Finn runs away from his alcoholic father and befriends Jim, a run-away African-American slave seeking freedom in the North.
The dialog of the text features local dialects drawn from Twain's experiences living in the South. When it was first published in the United States in , Huckleberry Finn was highly scrutinized and was banned by several libraries. Interestingly, the text was banned not for its saturation of racist vocabulary and prejudiced world-views, but for its depiction of criminal, lower class white Americans.
Although it continued to be challenged in the 20th century for its depiction and treatment of African-Americans, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn remains one of the Great American Novels. Indeed, Ernest Hemingway proclaimed that it was the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before.

Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Set in a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about 20 years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing satire on entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.

Ben stopped nibbling his apple.

I can't find the artist's name but the same person illustrated a companion volume of the novel where they are also uncredited which features a variation of the LP jacket art for the book cover. The sternwheel steamboat, at center on top is charming in the artist's spontaneous brushwork. The companion edition of the novel was published by Boje-Verlag in Stuttgart. There is no text printed anywhere on it so we can't determine when this was manufactured and what sort of delectables it originally contained.

Clemens Mark Twain whose novels about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn created a world so believable that many readers thought the boys and their adventures were real.
