Mark Twain Project

The preparation for simultaneous print and online publication of Volume 3 of American author and humorist Mark Twain's Autobiography, online publication of his letters from 1881-83, and online publication of two novels previously issued as print editions. (24 months)

The Mark Twain Project proposes to complete Volume 3 of the Autobiography of Mark Twain, by far the largest and arguably the most important of the works Mark Twain left deliberately unpublished at his death in 1910. Volume 3 is the last volume in this title, and like Volumes 1 and 2 before it, will be published simultaneously in print and on the Project’s website, MTPO. (Volume 1 was published in November 2010 and has sold approximately half a million copies; Volume 2 is on schedule to be published in June 2013.) The three volumes together will comprise the first complete, accurate, annotated, and authorial text ever published of the Autobiography. The Project also proposes to add the complete text of its print editions of Tom Sawyer and Connecticut Yankee to MTPO, along with another three years of letters (through 1883). And it plans to make various necessary upgrades and improvements to the infrastructure of MTPO, such as converting from TEI P4 to TEI P5.
