Sketches New and Old
Sketches New and Old is the fifth book in the Oxford Mark Twain collection, published in 1875. It contains material written from between 1863 and 1875 some of which can also be found in a book Twain did not favor, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and Other Sketches. This includes the title sketch "in English. Then in French. Then clawed back into civilized language once more by patient, unremunerated toil".
I, as SLCLemens in Second Life, have recorded readings from this book, produced slide shows of same and published them on YouTube or other service. Here they are for you enjoyment.
