Mark Twain Project Online
“Mark Twain Project Online applies innovative technology to more than four decades’ worth of archival research by expert editors at the Mark Twain Project. It offers unfettered, intuitive access to reliable texts, accurate and exhaustive notes, and the most recently discovered letters and documents.
Its ultimate purpose is to produce a digital critical edition, fully annotated, of everything Mark Twain wrote. MTPO is produced by the Mark Twain Papers and Project of The Bancroft Library in collaboration with the University of California Press; the site is hosted by UC Berkeley’s Library Systems Office. During 20058 the California Digital Library collaborated in MTPO’s creation and initial development.”

The Mark Twain Project’s editions of the writings are established using the earliest relevant sources and the holdings of the Mark Twain Papers collection at The Bancroft Library. The goal is to produce accurate, fully annotated texts that come as close as possible to realizing Mark Twain’s intentions.
Most of these texts have been digitized from the Mark Twain Project’s printed volumes. Although every effort has been made to ensure accurate conversion, errors do persist. MTPO searches out and corrects these errors, and welcomes input from users.
