This is the best short piece of work Clemens did; it is fantastic social and psychological commentary compressed into allegory form. Really puts that one about racing frogs in Northern California to shame. " 'This edition replaces the spurious 1916 edition published by Albert Bigelow Paine, which relied on the first instead of the final draft and deleted one-fourth of Mark Twain's words. It includes expert notes and commentary, as well as an illuminating glossary of printer's terms.' " " ' Text established by William M. Gibson and the staff of the Mark Twain Project. Foreword and notes by John S. Tuckey.' "
