This volume contains thirty-five articles of varying length dated all along through the years from the early '70's to 1908. Some of them had newspaper or magazine publication at the time, but most of them are now put into print for the first time. "A number of articles in this volume, even the more important, have not heretofore appeared in print. Few of these papers were unimportant, and a fresh interest attaches to them today in the fact that they present some new point of observation, some hitherto unexpected angle of Mark Twain's indefatigable thought" (Albert Bigelow Paine).
