The "Cheap Edition" of Huck Finn

  In 1891 Webster & Co., the publishing company MT himself owned, brought out "A New and Cheap Edition" of the novel. It was only available in one binding and sold for $1. According to the advertising, it was "printed from new plates," but the 44 illustrations it contained were all from the original 174 pictures that E. W. Kemble had drawn for the 1885 first edition. In this gallery you can see which Kembles were re-used by clicking on the active links on the list at left. The illustrations listed in this color are the ones that were not chosen.

  Two versions of the original novel, with all 144 illustrations, were also available at this time. The "cheapest" of these was $2.75.
