_1,002d Arabian Night_ has received virtually no critical attention, with
two small exceptions:
Susan Gillman, __Dark Twins: Imposture and Identity in Mark Twain's
America__, (1989) pp.108-109
Shelley Fisher Fishkin, "Mark Twain and Women," in __The Cambridge
Mark Twain__,ed. Forrest Robinson (1995) pp.65-66
(I haven't heard anything about the pictures turning up, but that doesn't
mean they won't some day.)
