Charles Dudley Warner collection

by WARNER, Charles Dudley (1829-1900)

  • Used
1894. No binding & hard cover. Charles Dudley Warner was an American essayist, novelist, lawyer. After the Clemens family moved to Hartford in 1871, Warner and Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) became friends, and collaborated on The Gilded Age (1873-74). It is for his share in this book, the first novel by either writer, that Warner is now best remembered. Warner was assistant editor (1860) and editor (1861-7) of The Hartford Press, and after The Press was merged into The Hartford Courant, was co-editor with Joseph R. Hawley; in 1884 he joined the editorial staff of Harper's Magazine, for which he conducted "The Editor's Drawer" until 1892, when he took charge of "The Editor's Study." He died in Hartford on the 20th of October 1900.
