I'm assuming you want True Williams' original ones? Try here: http://etext.virginia.edu/railton/tomsawye/tomillhp.html

And you can find them all over the pages at Twainquotes.com (which I bookmark so I can add zest to work emails sent to deserving types).

I was hoping there were others (not nuts about the style), but I'll take 'em!

Sorry, my html-fu is weak...

One of the versions of /The Adventures of Tom Sawyer/ available at Project Gutenberg has illustrations, and is specifically listed as "Not copyrighted in the United States". It's available in 8 parts, on 8 different pages:

http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/7193 through http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/7200 (7194, 7195, etc.)

On each page, you want to download the HTML format, ZIP compression. Should be easy to find -- it's the version with the largest size (over 2MB per part, compared to <100KB for the non-illustrated files). And once you unzip the images are conveniently contained in their own folders.

That's okay. My google-fu was absurdly week this fine day. :) I don't know why I never think of the Gutenberg project.

There's some images in the Dutch version on Project Gutenberg by Johan Braakensiek.

Thanks.

Oh, oops, just noticed I'm not logged in. Both replies above were me, as well!
