“Mark Twain at Play” exhibit now online

The editors at the Mark Twain Papers have recently completed a Web version of the exhibition, “Mark Twain at Play.”

Mark Twain was a hardworking and prolific writer, but how did he spend his time when the “bread-and-butter element” was put aside and he was free to relax and amuse himself?

This exhibition brings together manuscripts, documents, notebooks, albums, vintage photographs, and other artifacts from The Bancroft Library’s Mark Twain Papers. It was the inaugural exhibition (October 2008-April 2009) in the new exhibit space within the retrofitted and renovated Bancroft Library, UC Berkeley.
