A Tramp Abroad
A Tramp Abroad is a work of travel literature, including a mixture of autobiography and fictional events, by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. The book is the third of Mark Twain's five travel books and is often thought to be an unofficial sequel to the first one, The Innocents Abroad. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

Autobiography of Mark Twain
Autobiography of Mark Twain (1907) is a collection of autobiographical writings by American humorist Mark Twain. Dictated toward the end of his life, the Autobiography of Mark Twain is a series of brief reflections on 74 years of fame, hard work, and adventure by an icon of American literature. Originally serialized in the North American Review, the United States’ oldest literary magazine, the Autobiography of Mark Twain has gone through countless editions in the century after Twain’s death, and is considered a masterpiece of literary nonfiction. “I intend that this autobiography shall become a model for all future autobiographies when it is published [...] because of its form and method—a form and method whereby the past and the present are constantly brought face to face, resulting in contrasts which newly fire up the interest all along, like contact of flint with steel.” Focusing on the small events, unremarkable encounters, and marginalia which make a life both common and particular, Mark Twain envisions a model of autobiography capable of dispelling the myth of the writer as a man of fortune and mysterious talent. Capturing episodes from his youth and the early stages of his writing career, reflecting on the importance of his wife Olivia and daughter Susy, and describing the influence of labor on his philosophy of life, Twain invites his reader to recognize him not just as Samuel Clemens, his birth name, but as a man who lived and worked and triumphed and suffered alongside others, as a man whose success was a testament to the power of community. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Mark Twain’s Autobiography of Mark Twain is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.

Early Tales and Sketches, Volume 1
This collection brings together for the first time more than 360 of Mark Twain's short works written between 1851, the year of his first extant sketch, and 1871, when he renounced his ties with the Buffalo Express and the Galaxy, resolving to "write but little for periodicals hereafter." In October 1871 Clemens and his family moved to Hartford, where they would live until 1891. No longer a journalist, he was about to complete his second full-length book, Roughing It. The literary apprenticeship that he had begun twenty years before in the print shops of Hannibal, and pursued in the newspaper offices of Virginia City, San Francisco, and Buffalo, had at last come to a close. The selections included in these volumes represent a generous sampling from Mark Twain's most imaginative journalism, a few set speeches, a few poems, and hundreds of tales and sketches recovered from more than fifty newspapers and journals, as well as two dozen unpublished items of various description—the main body of what can now be found of his early literary and subliterary work, though by no means everything written during those twenty years of experimentation. The selections are ordered chronologically and therefore provide a nearly continuous record of the author's literary activity from his earliest juvenilia up through the mature work that he published in the Galaxy, the Buffalo Express, and many other journals.
