Samuel Langhorne Clemens(November 30, 1835– April 21, 1910),better known by hispen nameMark Twain, was an American author andhumorist. He wroteThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer(1876) and itssequel,Adventures of Huckleberry Finn(1885),the latter often called "theGreat American Novel."
Twain grew up inHannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting forHuckleberry FinnandTom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. He later became a riverboat pilot on theMississippi Riverbefore heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for theVirginia CityTerritorial Enterprise.In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was published, based on a story he heard atAngels HotelinAngels CampCalifornia where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, even being translated to classic Greek.His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend topresidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
Though Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he invested in ventures that lost a great deal of money, notably thePaige Compositor, which failed because of its complexity and imprecision. In the wake of these financial setbacks he filed for protection from his creditors via a bankruptcy filing, and with the help ofHenry Huttleston Rogerseventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, though he had no responsibility to do this under the law.
Twain was born shortly after a visit byHalley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it," too. He died the day following the comet's subsequent return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age,"andWilliam Faulknercalled Twain "the father ofAmerican literature."

Unfortunately in order to show proof of shipping, we now have to ship items out of the United States, except Canada , registered mail which is $20.00 additional shipping fee. There are too many orders which are not being received in a timely fashion, or lost etc. and this apparently is the only way to keep both of us honest. We understand that some postal systems are very slow once it leaves the border and apparently this is now the only way we can both be protected by the Seller and Buyer Protection Programs within ..
