Original red cloth with gilt title and Mark Twain on the front and on the spine. The spine is some darkened. This is the first English illustrated edition, published a year after the first English and American editions of Twain's classic tale. Nice repairs to the spine ends, and minimal edge wear mostly to the corners. Very clean copy with no browning or stains or foxing. /The back side of the free endpapers do show some acid browning. Hinges fine. Now protected in a clear, mylar sleeve. BAL 3367. The text illustrations make this a more enjoyable read than the first edition. And this version is as scarce as the English first edition. The 40 page catalog of publisher books at the rear is dated July 1880 in this copy.
