I am not aware of Thomas Edison  recording Twain; however, Twain bought an
Edison phonograph and tried making dictation recordings with the machine. In
a letter to Howells, Twain said that he had made several cylinders of notes
on the machine, but in the end it was easier to use a pen.  No one seems to
know what ever became of these recordings....sigh....

Stay Well
