Within the last 30 minutes this AM I've had three people ask about where to
get the Twain's World CD. I don't know!!

It was published years ago for $39.95 by Bureau Development, but went out of
print within a few years and was being sold for within the last few years
for $5 on ebay and other online sources. I don't see them very often
anymore, but here's the latest listing I've seen for the publisher. I have
not checked to see if they are even still in business.

Bureau Development, 141 New Road, Parsippany, NJ 07054, USA, Tel: USA
800-828-4766 or 201-808-2700.

The CD used whatever texts it could find in the public domain, including
some poor choices like the 1917 Letters, but it's very handy for basic
keyword searching. It includes some interesting video clips of the era. The
Edison film of Twain at Stormfield can be found by going to the homepage,
click Galleries, then videos, then click "list" in the toolbar and scroll
down to "Twain live" and double-click. It's disappointingly tiny. I didn't
see a way to enlarge it, but you can freeze frame it. Some Nerd among us
might know how to enlarge it and even print from the freeze frames. Please
note that I capitalized nerd as a sign of respect.
