The book, which arrives on bookstore shelves this month, is the first edition of "Huckleberry Finn" to make use of the original first half of Mark Twain's manuscript, long believed lost until its surprise discovery in a Hollywood attic in 1991. "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," published by UC Press, features all of E. W. Kemble's original drawings for the book, samples of which can be seen in the accompanying slide show.
