Online Exhibition | Mark Twain: A Skeptic’s Progress
In 2010, to celebrate the 175th anniversary of his birth, the Morgan, in partnership with The New York Public Library, presented the iconic author’s manuscripts, letters, drawings, books, original illustrations for his books, and posed and candid photographs.
