Description - The Annotated Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

A sumptuous new edition of the great American novel.


"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark
Twain called Huckleberry Finn," Ernest Hemingway once
declared. First published in 1885, the book has delighted millions
of readers, while simultaneously riling contemporary sensibilities,
and is still banned in many schools and libraries. Now, Michael
Patrick Hearn, author of the best-selling The Annotated Wizard
of Oz, thoroughly reexamines the 116-year heritage of that
archetypal American boy, Huck Finn, and follows his adventures
along every bend of the mighty Mississippi River. Hearn's copious
annotations draw on primary sources including the original
manuscript, Twain's revisions and letters, and period accounts.
Reproducing the original E. W. Kemble illustrations from the first
edition, as well as countless archival photographs and drawings,
some of them previously unpublished, The Annotated Huckleberry
Finn is a book no family's library can do without; it may well
prove to be the classic edition of the great American novel.
274 illustrations, two-color throughout.
