Mark Twain Project

The preparation for simultaneous print and online publication of Volume 3 of the Autobiography of Mark Twain, completion of editorial work on Twain's San Francisco Correspondence and The Innocents Abroad, and the addition of several of the project's print editions to the open access website. (24 months)

The Mark Twain Project proposes to proofread and index Volume 3 of the Autobiography of Mark Twain, publishing it in print and on its open-access website (MTPO) by the end of 2015. (Volume 1 was so published in November 2010 and has sold half a million copies; Volume 2 was published in October 2013 and 100,000 copies have been printed.) The Project also proposes to complete all editorial work on two important early works in Mark Twain's canon: San Francisco Correspondence, 1865-1866 (some of his brilliant journalism collected for the first time) and The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrim's Progress (his first international bestseller). The Project also proposes to add the complete text of its print editions of Tom Sawyer and Notebooks & Journals, Volume 1 to MTPO, along with more 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.
