Mark Twain Project

Preparation for print and digital publication of two volumes of works by Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad and San Francisco Writings; Volume 7 of his letters; a comprehensive bibliography of Twain’s works; the digital release of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; and completion of necessary upgrades to the search engine and image database of the Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO). See website at http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/MTP/.

The Mark Twain Project proposes to complete and publish—both in print and electronically on its Web site, Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO)—two large volumes in the Works of Mark Twain: The Innocents Abroad and San Francisco Writings, 1865–1866. It also intends to complete the text and annotation for Mark Twain’s Letters, Volume 7 (1876–1877) for release on MTPO and in print. It will add The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and three years of letters (1881–1883) to MTPO, and complete and release the Writings Database, the first truly comprehensive bibliography of Mark Twain’s work ever attempted. It also plans to make various needed upgrades and improvements to its editorial toolbox: an EAD finding aid for original documents in the Mark Twain Papers; improvements to the subject authorities file and the image database on MTPO; and thoroughgoing documentation of its local TEI encoding and post-processing practice.
