Mark Twain's helpful hints for good living : a handbook for the damned human race by Mark Twain( )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irreverent, charming, eminently quotable, this handbook--an eccentric etiquette guide for the human race--contains sixty-nine aphorisms, anecdotes, whimsical suggestions, maxims, and cautionary tales from Mark Twain's private and published writings. It dispenses advice and reflections on family life and public manners opinions on topics such as dress, health, food, and childrearing and safety and more specialized tips, such as those for dealing with annoying salesmen and burglars. Culled from Twain's personal letters, autobiographical writings, speeches, novels, and sketches, these pieces are delightfully fresh, witty, startlingly relevant, and bursting with Twain's characteristic ebullience for life. They also remind us exactly how Mark Twain came to be the most distinctive and well-known American literary voice in the world"--Publisher's description
Roughing it by Mark Twain( )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Twain's humorous account of his six years in Nevada, San Francisco, and the Sandwich Islands is a patchwork of personal anecdotes and tall tales, many of them told in the "vigorous new vernacular" of the West. Selling seventy five thousand copies within a year of its publication in 1872, Roughing It was greeted as a work of "wild, preposterous invention and sublime exaggeration" whose satiric humor made "pretension and false dignity ridiculous." Meticulously restored from a variety of original sources, the text is the first to adhere to the author's wishes in thousands of details of wordi

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text of this new scholarly edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the first ever to be based on Mark Twain's complete, original manuscript - including its first 665 pages, half the book, which had been lost for over a hundred years when they turned up in 1990 in a Los Angeles attic. The editors have thoroughly re-edited the text, restoring thousands of details of wording, spelling, and punctuation which were misread, overlooked, or corrupted by Mark Twain's typist, typesetters, and proofreaders." "The new introduction traces the history of Mark Twain's writing of the novel in erratic stints from 1876 until the completion of the manuscript in the summer of 1883. It continues with the editing and production of the book, the selection of Edward W. Kemble as illustrator, and the printing of the first edition, with the dramatic discovery of a salacious defaced illustration on the eve of publication. An account of the book's reception and sales is included." "This edition also includes all 174 of the "rattling good" first edition illustrations by 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." "The editorial material is extraordinarily rich. The editors provide detailed historical notes, a glossary, maps of the Mississippi River valley that locate episodes in the story, and several documentary appendixes: Mark Twain's literary working notes; facsimile manuscript pages; selected passages from the manuscript, which illustrate how carefully Mark Twain revised, stage by stage; reproductions of the author's revisions of the text in preparation for his reading tours; and contemporary advertisements and publisher's announcements." "This wealth of supplementary material also includes, in the textual appendixes, a description of the manuscript and all texts used in preparing this edition, as well as a complete list of the author's revisions, and the record of every variant between the manuscript and the first edition, all essential tools for the scholar."--Jacket

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

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 31 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.
