Mark Twain Project Online

The External linkMark Twain Project Online (MTPO) is a groundbreaking digital critical edition of Mark Twain’s works that applies innovative, XTF-based search, display, and citation technology to more than four decades of archival research by expert editors at the Mark Twain Project, based at the University of California’s Bancroft Library.

MTPO offers unfettered, intuitive access to authoritative texts, accurate and exhaustive notes, and the most recently discovered letters and documents authored by Twain.

The site currently includes more than 2,300 letters written between 1853 and 1880, including nearly 100 facsimiles of originals, as well as digital editions of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (2003) and Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer among the Indians (1989). In future years, MTPO will release more of the nearly 10,000 known letters, including many never before published; further electronic editions of Mark Twain's most famous literary works; the most complete catalog of Mark Twain's writings currently available; and, in 2010, Mark Twain's Autobiography – never before published in its complete form. MTPO is available at no charge to institutions or individuals.

MTPO is a joint project of the External linkMark Twain Papers and Project of The Bancroft Library, the California Digital Library, and the External linkUniversity of California Press.
