Through unauthorized changes and inadvertent errors, Mark Twains first publishers brought out texts full of thousands of errors in form and content. Later publishers then based their reprints on these corrupt editions and added errors of their own.
- Teaching Mathematics Using ICT?
- All About History: Events That Changed The World.
- Tom Sawyer, Detective and Tom Sawyer Abroad.
- One Health: The Human-Animal-Environment Interfaces in Emerging Infectious Diseases: Food Safety and Security, and International and National Plans for Implementation of One Health Activities.
It is the aim of the Iowa-California edition to strip away this accretion of error and present texts faithful to the authors intention. By comparing all the life-time version of Mark Twains works, the editors are able to isolate the authors revisions from the printers and publishers changes.

Tom despairs of ever having an intelligent conversation with his two companions, and they in turn often feel that their arguments have gotten the better of Tom.
By transferring the locale to the Phelps farm described in Huckle berry Finn, Mark Twain is able once more to use Huck as narrator and Tom Sawyer as the central character.
He is also able to insert such favorite devices as male twins, a false deaf—Mute the, fear of ghosts, swindles perpetrated on the innocent, mistaken identity, and a dramatic backwoods trial. An unknown error has occurred.
