Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; page 283 facsimile

A reproduction of the "phallic plate" from page 283 of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. 1/8" tear to head, appears to have been bound in (and removed) as a verso rather than a recto as p.283 is usually bound. Believed to have been defaced during printing, the plate was altered to suggest the appearance of an erection on the gentleman in the image. One of 100 proof copies made by Merle Johnson from an original leaf in the collection of Willard S. Morse. Very good +. Item #1579

Price: $950.00
