If you're a grammar nerd or someone who pays intimate attention to detail, there can be nothing as irksome as a incorrect grammar be it a spelling error, improper punctuation or a harmless typo. Aside from being a pain and total distraction to the reader, major typos can actually result in major costs for the book manufacturers if the book is a bestseller or an all-time classic. This, in turn, means that owning one of these famously misprinted books could have you owning an extremely valuable collector's item And you might not even know it! One of the most valuable misprints can be found in the original edition of 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, the classic tale of friendship and mischief along the Mississippi River that served as the sequel to "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". In the first printed issue of the novel, the word "Decides" was misprinted as "Decided", and the word "saw" is mistyped as "was" on page

I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.

Mark Twain enjoys a reputation as one of America's legendary writers, and the value of rare books by Twain have appreciated in value accordingly. Meanwhile, he's one of the more accessible 19th-century authors to collect because his books were published in larger numbers than those of contemporaries like Melville and Thoreau. Thirteen of Twain's first editions were included. By , Twain was continually inundated with requests for autographs and realized his own celebrity. He asked his English publisher to produce a limited edition of his poetry, but his agent declined; at the time, Twain was not known as a poet.

Considered by many to be one of America's 'first gentleman of letters' the impact of Mark Twain should not be overlooked by the serious collector. Through his career he not only penned the great Huckleberry Finn, but also contributed a large number of short stories, adventure tales, anthologies and even verse. A large part of Mark Twain's success as an author owes itself to the early decisions made on his behalf by a New York Rare Book Publisher, Leon and Brothers in , placing no less that 13 of Mark Twain's volumes on their must-have collectible catalog list. This in turn led to a greater interest to be paid to the young author, and more of his works being printed. For the modern collector much of Mark Twain's first edition works will be pricey to acquire, but their desirability to the marketplace only makes them a valuable addition to any collection. Another interesting feature of Mark Twain's works is that, due to their popularity at the time, there are quite a number of limited-number print runs of his shorter tales such as Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven or The Jumping Frog that can be found.
