“But still he was lucky, uncommon lucky; he most always come out winner.”

  • Mark Twain, The Celebrated Jumping Frog

 

‘Sketches, New and Old’, published in 1875, was a collection of 63 of Samuel Clemens’s earliest newspaper and journal writings. It was his most ambitious, most thoroughly sifted, and most fully revised collection of his apprentice work. It was also his final one. Some works include:

  • The Jumping Frog
  • To Raise Poultry
  • Science vs. luck
  • A Curious dream

 

Many of the short stories in this collection were of materials that Twain used in his public readings and lectures. It was published similarly to that of many of his other ‘subscription books,’ but it was a much smaller book and printed on more ‘squarish’ paper than that of his other works.
