about

Everyone knows Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. But, not everyone has read the complete, first edition of the Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Now, you can!

This edition of the book contains the 161 original illustrations, rejuvenated. Remember as you look at them, they were drawn in 1876!

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.

Though Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he invested in ventures that lost a great deal of money, notably the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter, which failed because of its complexity and imprecision. In the wake of these financial setbacks, he filed for protection from his creditors via bankruptcy, and with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, though he had no legal responsibility to do so.

Twain was born shortly after a visit by Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it", too. He died the day after the comet returned. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
