   I knew of two from my own collecting:

   The first and best is Milton Meltzer's "Mark Twain Himself," Crowell,
1960. The second book was kind of an oddity - "Mark Twain in the Movies," by
John Seelye, Viking, 1977. Odd because, among other things, it is rather
negative. It did, however, have a wealth of pictures.

   I followed up on OCLC, which displays pretty much every book every
published in America. I didn't see anything else to dethrone the Meltzer

There is a really swell volume of pictures/photos of Abe Lincoln, ed. by
Holzer and Neely, called _The Lincoln Image_.

I am trying to locate anything similar for our friend Mark Twain and I am
failing.  Now it dawns on me that this would really fill a gap in Twain

Any suggestions?  Does such a volume exist??  I need some ideas in
particular about how Twain was "pictured" here and esp. abroad during the
last couple decades of his life (post Huck Finn).

thanks, --Hal Bush
