Series Editor of The Mark Twain Papers
by Mark Twain
Edited with an Introduction by
William M. Gibson
AT ONE TIME, the editors of the Iowa-California Edition
of the writings of Mark Twain and the editors of The Mark Twain
Papers, along with their respective publishers, intended to publish
Mark Twain's Mysterious Stranger Manuscripts jointly, since the
volume includes both published and unpublished writings. However, the published version is partly fraudulent, and the unpublished versions bulk larger than what had appeared in print.
Moreover, the University of California Press has become the publisher for the Iowa edition (as it then was) as well as The Papers.
Thus the book appears as a part of The Mark Twain Papers rather
than under a double imprint.
