A second edition of Volume I is now underway. This volume has been out of print for the past year. So many possible additions and corrections have piled up for (1835-1885), and the desire to add most if not all INCOMING letters has led to the work being started. NO plans for new editions of other volumes. In fact, this is my last contribution to Twain studies. At least, this side of paradise. If you're interested in being notified when the new Vol I is complete (aiming for year's end, or start of 2014), then send us a quick email. Do NOT send funds at this time. Thanks.

On my first visit to the Mark Twain House in Sept. of 2009, I was awe-struck by the beauty and reality of the place. There were so many fascinating DETAILS of such beauty and grace and thought. In particular, I was struck by two special windows at the desk end of Sam's third-floor billiard room, which obviously were designed with Twain in mind: they were translucent and I found out later they were thin pieces of marble! I had not heard about them or read about them before; they were mesmerizing. Photos weren't allowed inside the house, but a "little mouse" took these for me and I'm happy to display them. The window on the lefts ports "18" with designs and the one on the right "74" with designs--denoting 1874, the year the house was completed.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens lived 74 years, 4 months, and 23 days—or 27,171 days. At 27 years of age he began using the nom de plume, “Mark Twain,” which most Americans have known him by since. It is understatement to say that his life was a full one. Here at last is a detailed and indexed account, a monumental work taken from a wide range of published and unpublished sources, of his life, the first 50 years. Volume I is 1,148 pages; Volume II is 1,298 pages--these reference books are indispensable for any serious Twain scholar or library. – K. E.
