Notes:
"When Albert Bigelow Paine published his two-volume edition of Mark Twain's Autobiography in 1924, he used something less than half of the typescript in which everything that Mark wanted in his memoirs had been brought together. This book uses about half of the remainder. It has been selected, rearranged, and to some extent edited."--Introd.
