Huckleberry Finn smokin'

I added to my modest collection of Huckleberry Finn books recently when the public library had a remodeling sale. Picked it up for a buck.

The thing I like about it, and which makes it unique to all the others I own, is it’s the only one I have where Huck is smoking a pipe on the cover. It’s a cool drawing, though I think Huck looks younger than the 13- or 14-year-old Huck in the novel. Maybe not.

Huck, the vagabond, slippin’ out for a smoke. Widow Douglas would not be happy.
