Description

Product Description

A great American novelist, illustrated by a great American artist―now available in a collectible two-volume set

In 1936, the Heritage Press, a publisher of fine editions, commissioned Norman Rockwell to illustrate Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer; four years later, they asked him to illustrate The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as well. For each book, Rockwell created eight full-color paintings and numerous pen-and-ink drawings, the product of extensive on-the-ground research in Twain’s hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. Famously, Rockwell even tried to buy some Hannibal residents’ old clothes, to dress his models in.

For years, the Rockwell editions of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn have been unavailable in stores. Now, Abbeville Press is proud to reissue them as a handsome new clothbound set. The color plates are reproduced from new photography of Rockwell’s original paintings, the typesetting has been done anew to a high standard, and new introductions―illustrated with Rockwell’s rarely seen preliminary sketches―examine this unique encounter between two legendary chroniclers of America.

Publisher’s note: These volumes present Mark Twain’s text unabridged and unedited, as it appeared in the original American editions of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885).

Two clothbound volumes in slipcase

Very small print
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2020
The stories are timeless but they made the print way too small to diminish the size of the books

I will enjoy reading these books and they look nice on the shelf too. A pair of new hardcover books for $35 is a good deal.

More than gift quality. Wonderful binding. Cloth covers. And, of course, Rockwell illustrations well printed. The set is gift quality. So I bought another for a gift.

A Norman Rockwell and Mark Twain classic
Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2021
My favorite books and author from childhood. I had to add this to my collection. The illustrations are the best money can buy. No one can do illustrations quite like Norman Rockwell.

Book came with pages torn, and the cover frayed. Bought the book because it is a favorite and I wanted an old hardcover for my favorites shelf. Unfortunately its pretty messed up looking, so I''ll just be reading this one.
