Offered is a mint copy of the 1936 edition of Mark Twain's Adventures of Tom Sawyer that is illustrated by Norman Rockwell by the Heritage Press of New York. This edition is not the first printing of this edition which had a special burlap cover and tipped illustrations, but it is otherwise similarly printed on high quality paper and is a beautiful edition.  The book is in unread condition without any flaws despite it's being published over 70 years ago. Having been unread, the book is structurally perfect. Two of the thirteen Rockwell illustrations have been photographed for the listing.  A classic piece of literature perfect for a book collector of Americana  or as a gift to a child or adult. Also included is the original Heritage Sandglass brochure  which details the history of the book and the special efforts that were made in connection with its printing and the commissioning of Norman Rockwell to illustrate the Adventures in his wonderful style.


Two other books have been listed by me which, if purchased by one USA buyer, can be combined for considerable shipping cost savings if shipped by USPS Media Mail.
