Completion of an electronic online edition of Mark Twain's Letters and editorial work and XML encoding of Twain's Autobiographical writings. (24 months)

The Mark Twain Project of the Bancroft Library seeks funding for editorial work and XML encoding of a scholarly edition of Mark Twain's Autobiography, the largest and arguably the most important of the manuscripts Mark Twain left deliberately unpublished, forbidding publication until 100 years after his death. This edition will be published in 2010 through Mark Twain's Writings Online; the text and notes will also be issued in 3 printed volumes by the University of California Press. The editors will identify persons, places, and events in editorial notes. They will establish the text from several thousand pages of manuscript and typescript and will identify and report on which changes are authorial and which are by A. B. Paine.
