Note "America's most precocious experiment in realistic theater ... written by Mark Twain's two close friends ... contributed to the new genre of science fiction with its namesake invention, an anticipation of the lie detector. The play was also advanced in the venture into the new interest of the [sic] detective fiction, and by its bold social commentary."--P. [4] of cover.
