Moser began work on the Pennyroyal Huckleberry Finn in February of 1982, just after Alice was published. A new restored version of Twain’s text was coming from The Mark Twain Project at the University of California, Berkeley and they asked Moser to produce a volume on the scale of Alice with the new text.
The edition went to press on December 10, 1984 on the one hundredth anniversary of Huckleberry Finn’s first publication in Great Britain.
