Notes

The definitive edition, signed "S L Clemens / Mark Twain", limited to 1,024 sets only of which this is 886. The publisher states that Twain intended a definitive collected edition and so put his autograph to 1024 single leaves in 1906. These were not recovered until long after his death, when the project could finally be completed. This set includes the extra two volumes of Autobiography.
