Huck Finn’s Friend Tom Sawyer and His Adventures
Lest we forget, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) predates Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884, London ed.) and it is where Huck Finn had his beginnings as Tom’s friend. While the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library proudly houses the manuscript of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, George University Library keeps The Adventures of Tom Sawyer manuscript. The current exhibit pays tribute to Tom showcasing a facsimile of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer manuscript, a copy of the first American edition illustrated by True Williams, a copy of the earlier and un-illustrated first Canadian edition and select foreign language editions of the Twain novel.
