Kudos for Mark Twain catalogue

Posted May 10, 2000

The catalogue for the fall 1998 Bancroft Library exhibit, "Mark Twain at Large: His Travels Here and Abroad," is the Division 2 winner in the 2000 Katharine K. Leab & Daniel J. Leab American Book Prices Current Exhibition Catalogue Award competition.

In her letter of congratulations, awards committee chairwoman Diane Shaw described the 64-page catalogue as "a wonderful introduction to the Bancroft's Mark Twain collection and the work of the Mark Twain Papers/Project."

"The catalogue is a sheer delight to read, with text and pictures that really touch the heart while conveying Twain's special genius," Shaw said.

The exhibit and catalogue were created by Lin Salamo, Harriet Elinor Smith and Robert Pack Browning of the Mark Twain Project. The catalogue was designed by Mary Scott of Library Graphics.

Bancroft Deputy Direct Peter Hanff will accept the award on behalf of the Mark Twain Project at the American Library Association's conference in Chicago July 9.

Excerpts from the catalogue and ordering information are on the Mark Twain Papers Web site, at
