Twain, Mark: At Length ~ Collected Novelettes & Essays. v2. 11 June 2014

AT LENGTH: Collected Novelettes and Essays
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 58 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:

About All Kinds of Ships
The Modern Steamer and the Obsolete Steamer

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

Uploaded At Length, version 2.
Added the novellas “Tom Sawyer Abroad”, “Tom Sawyer Detective”, “The Mysterious Stranger”; the long essays “Christian Science and the Book of Mrs. Eddy”, “Mrs. Eddy in Error”, “Letters from the Earth”, “The Treaty with China Explained”; and also a collection of short pieces about copyright, a subject always of concern to Twain.

I also added an linked alphabetic index of titles, some css tweaks, and a new cover.

You might find some use in "The Mark Twain Collections Companion Index," available here,
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=240883
listing the locations of the 900 titles included in the collections "In Brief," "At Length," "Out Loud," and "At Large." It also includes a detailed bibliography.

Shame on me!
I got in a rush, and forgot to thank JELLBY for his wonderful help with this collection. Thanks to his eagle eyes, several hundred errors were corrected.

Of course, it's a bit embarrassing that I missed all those, but wonderful that they are fixed now.
