Letters From The Earth

I published a book by Mark Twain on the internet

Letters from the Earth first edition book

My first edition copy of Letters from the Earth.

This work by Samuel Clemens was written in 1910, but was considered too controversial to publish at the time.

As it is in the public domain, there are quite a few e-book editions available online for low or no cost. I created this web based version because the canonical web copy is riddled with typos and poor typography. All of the e-books I have found are taken from this poor copy.

The open web is the perfect platform for free speech and the open exchange of ideas. The spirit of these blasphemous writings by Mark Twain are perfectly suited to this medium.
