Published in 1910, this book is a testament to the long friendship between Howells and Twain. Emerson, Longfellow, Lowell, Holmes I knew them all and all the rest of our sages, poets, seers, critics, humorists, Howells writes; they were like one another and like other literary men; but Clemens [Twain] was sole, incomparable, the Lincoln of our literature. The second half of the book collects Howells's perceptive reviews of Twain's works.
