Summary
"The text of this new scholarly edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the first ever to be based on Mark Twain's complete, original manuscript - including its first 665 pages, half the book, which had been lost for over a hundred years when they turned up in 1990 in a Los Angeles attic. The editors have thoroughly re-edited the text, restoring thousands of details of wording, spelling, and punctuation which were misread, overlooked, or corrupted by Mark Twain's typist, typesetters, and proofreaders." "The new introduction traces the history of Mark Twain's writing of the novel in erratic stints from 1876 until the completion of the manuscript in the summer of 1883. It continues with the editing and production of the book, the selection of Edward W. Kemble as illustrator, and the printing of the first edition, with the dramatic discovery of a salacious defaced illustration on the eve of publication. An account of the book's reception and sales is included." "This edition also includes all 174 of the "rattling good" first edition illustrations by Kemble. It restores the raftsmen's episode, which Mark Twain casually agreed to let his publisher leave out of the first edition, and includes John Harley's lively drawings for it." "The editorial material is extraordinarily rich. The editors provide detailed historical notes, a glossary, maps of the Mississippi River valley that locate episodes in the story, and several documentary appendixes: Mark Twain's literary working notes; facsimile manuscript pages; selected passages from the manuscript, which illustrate how carefully Mark Twain revised, stage by stage; reproductions of the author's revisions of the text in preparation for his reading tours; and contemporary advertisements and publisher's announcements." "This wealth of supplementary material also includes, in the textual appendixes, a description of the manuscript and all texts used in preparing this edition, as well as a complete list of the author's revisions, and the record of every variant between the manuscript and the first edition, all essential tools for the scholar."--Jacket
