"I've struck it!" Mark Twain once wrote. "And I will give it away--to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography." Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his "Final (and Right) Plan" for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion--to "talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment"--Meant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for one hundred years meant that when they came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and that he was therefore free to speak his "whole frank mind." This first of three volumes presents Mark Twain's authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn : Tom Sawyer's comrade ... by Mark Twain( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition prints the first and only text of Mark Twain's masterpiece ever based on his complete manuscript - including its first 663 pages, half the book, lost for over a hundred years until discovered in 1990 in a Los Angeles attic. Using this newly restored manuscript, the editors have recovered thousands of details of wording, spelling, and punctuation which were misread, "corrected," or simply overlooked by Mark Twain's "typewriter copyist" and his typesetters. The text includes all 174 of the "rattling good" first edition illustrations by E.W. Kemble. It restores the raftsmen's episode, which Mark Twain casually agreed to let his publisher leave out of the first edition, and includes John Harley's lively drawings for it. And at the back of the book is a new gathering of manuscript passages, some photographically reproduced, showing how and with what extraordinary artistry Mark Twain revised his work. They include Jim's comically grotesque "ghost" story, unknown before the recent discovery of the manuscript. In addition, the editors provide more than seventy pages of detailed historical notes, a glossary, and five maps of the Mississippi River valley that locate various episodes in the story. Combining uniquely rich historical materials with a text as Mark Twain wanted it to be read, this should become the standard edition for all readers of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."--Jacket

Mark Twain at large : his travels here and abroad( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) took his first extended trip in 1853 at the age of 17 and returned from the last in 1910, just a few days before he died. In between, he "visited five continents, steamed across the Atlantic twenty-nine times, and crossed the Pacific and Indian oceans as part of one complete round-the-world circuit." For Twain, travel was at times an escape, an inspiration for his writing, and a financial necessity. This exhibit from the Mark Twain Papers and Project, the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley, makes good use of its extensive collection to examine the role of travel in Twain's writing and his life. Each section examines Twain's experience in different locations, such as along the Mississippi, the American West, Europe, and Bermuda. Each section consists of images of photos and items such as letters, journals, and books, with explanatory text and some excerpts. The site would benefit from an index but on the whole it offers an interesting glimpse into a lesser-known facet of this very American writer's life.
