The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 1876 Mark Twain $1281

Old books are usually a dime a dozen since they are printed by the thousands, but if you have a first printing by an acclaimed author, you have a winner. We had two copies of  "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 1876 First Edition Printing (by) Mark Twain" - one with a beat up cover, the other with some missing pages. Together, they fetched $1281 and the buyer told me he was a professional binder and planned to use them both to make one nice copy which would be worth at least $2000.
