Mark Twain and His World
This volume is a pictorial biography of American author and humorist Mark Twain (1835-1910). Twain is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), which has been called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). Twain was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Twain was very popular, and his keen wit and incisive satire earned praise from critics and peers. This work features color illustrations, reproductions of paintings, and photographs intended to supplement and enhance the words that describe the life and times of "the father of American literature."
