Mark Twain Project

Preparation for print and digital publication of three volumes of works by Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad, San Francisco Writings, and Pudd’nhead Wilson; Volume 7 of his letters; and completion of necessary upgrades to the search engine and image database of the Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO). (24 months)

The proposed grant will enable the Mark Twain Project, during 2018–2020, to publish (in print and on Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO) three scholarly editions: The Innocents Abroad; San Francisco Correspondence, 1865–1866; and Mark Twain’s Letters, Volume 7: 1876–1877. We will also begin and complete editorial work on a scholarly edition of Pudd’nhead Wilson, for submission to press by the period’s end. Other additions to MTPO will include publication of five years of Mark Twain’s letter texts (written 1883–87), and digitization of five of the Project’s earlier-published editions of literary works. In the same period the Project will also upgrade MTPO’s user interface, and commence improvements to make its data set more usable and available.
