Twain, Mark: At Length: Collected Novelettes & Essays. v1. 11 Feb 2013

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 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:

Spoiler:
VOLUME I - FICTION:
The Recent Carnival of Crime in Connecticut
The Stolen White Elephant
The Loves of Alonzo Fitz Clarence
A Curious Experience
Meisterschaft in Three Acts
The £1,000,000 Bank-note
The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg
A Double-Barreled Detective Story
Was It Heaven? Or Hell?
The $30,000 Bequest
A Horse’s Tale
Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven

VOLUME II - MEMOIRS:
Some Rambling Notes of an Idle Excursion
The Awful German Language
The Private History of a Campaign That Failed
Mental Telegraphy
Mental Telegraphy Again
About All Kinds of Ships
My Début as a Literary Person
The Turning Point of My Life
Down the Rhône
The Lost Napoleon

VOLUME III - LITERARY CRITICISM:
A Majestic Literary Fossil
A Cure for the Blues
The Curious Book Complete
In Defense of Harriet Shelley
Essays on Paul Bourget
Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offenses
Fenimore Cooper’s Further Literary Offenses
Is Shakespeare Dead?

VOLUME IV - SOCIAL CRITICICSM:
Goldsmith’s Friend Abroad Again
Stirring Times in Austria
Concerning the Jews
To the Person Sitting in Darkness
To My Missionary Critics
An Unpublished Letter on the Czar
The Czar’s Soliloquy
King Leopold’s Soliloquy
What Is Man?

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