The Mark Twain Project benefits from every copy sold, at Amazon or elsewhere--'tho I always encourage you to patronize your local independent bookstore if you have one!
I want to express my gratitude for the work that Harriet Elinor Smith and the other editors at the Mark Twain Project have done. It's really something extraordinary. Many of you have experienced first-hand the generosity of the editors. When you visit or contact the Mark Twain Papers, they provide you with a very high level of access to the materials in the archive. With this book, the editors are able to extend that level of access to all readers around the world. I first heard about the project eight years ago, which tells you just how long it's been in the works. This is truly a "life work"
in every sense.
It's been a pleasure and honor for those of us at the University of California Press to publish the *Autobiography*.
