Twain, Mark: At Length: Collected Novelettes & Essays. v1. 11 Feb 2013
by Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835 – 1910)
First published 1870 ~ 1923
Mark Twain is most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel." Among dozens of titles, some of his works include The Innocents Abroad, A Tramp Abroad, Roughing It, Life on the Mississippi, The Prince and the Pauper, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and many more.
“At Length” gathers 40 works from the various Twain collections, plus several additional sources. Contents of each volume are arranged chronologically by first publication date, as provided by on-line sources. Volume 4 has some illustrations. Available as a four-volume set, or as an omnibus.
As with the "In Brief ~ Collected Short Works" I posted earlier, this is a mixed bag. Some of the pieces are rollicking good fun, but Twain also turns a blazing spotlight on some unacceptable social and moral misbehavior. You're sure to get some education along the way.
Here is a list of the contents:
Editorial Notes -- Formatted curly quotes, emdashes, diacritics. Restored italics where possible. Minor punctuation and spelling changes for consistency. Americanized spelling for some pieces. End-notes cross-linked to source paragraphs. Story titles cross-linked to html table of contents. Embedded fonts for titling, drop-caps, and small-caps.
Texts were retrieved from gutenberg.org, archive.org, wikisource.org, jstor.org, Making of America at cdl.library.cornell.edu, and vivovoco.rsl.ru.
EDITED to re-do attachments (hey, they fell off!!!???)
Only one thing is impossible for God: to find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.

Thanks. You've obviously done a tremendous amount of work getting the sources and putting them together.
