    DescriptionHere is young Sam Clemens - in the world, getting famous, making love - in 155 magnificently edited letters that trace his remarkable self-transformation from a footloose, irreverent West Coast journalist to a popular lecturer and author of "The Jumping Frog", soon to be a national and international celebrity. And on the move he was - from San Francisco to New York, to St. Louis, and then to Paris, Naples, Rome, Athens, Constantinople, Yalta, and the Holy Land; back to New York and on to Washington; back to San Francisco and Virginia City; and, on to lecturing in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New York. Resplendent with wit, love of life, ambition, and literary craft, this new volume in the wonderful Bancroft Library edition of "Mark Twain's Letters" will delight and inform both scholars and general readers. This volume has been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Mark Twain Foundation, Jane Newhall, and The Friends of The Bancroft Library.

    Review quote
    "The editors of this series have enriched the literary history of the United States with the publishing of these letters. We look forward to the next volume."--Barbara W. Rippey, "Western American Literature
    Back cover copy
    These letters (all that are known to survive from the period) trace his travels-from San Francisco to New York, to St. Louis, and then to Paris, Naples, Rome, Athens, Constantinople, Yalta and the Holy Land; back to New York and on to Washington; back to San Francisco and Virginia City for what would be the last time; and finally, to lecture engagements in cities in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New York. The 155 letters in this volume--many of them previously unpublished--have been meticulously transcribed, either from the original manuscripts or from the most reliable sources available.
