In reply to queries concerning the book titles that Charles L. Webster &
Co. published, I can offer the following list of 51 titles (including Mark
Twain's own books) that Kevin Bochynski and I assembled about a year ago.
We cannot confirm all these titles, as many are taken from casual mentions
in books such as Meltzer and Kaplan. The best sources include Hamlin Hill's
edition of _Mark Twain's Letters to His Publishers_ and advertisements in
CLW books.  Keep in mind that not all advertised titles were necessarily
published. If you need to know our exact source of information for any
title, please contact me directly by e-mail.
