Summary

Summary

The second of a projected series of all Thackeray's works reconstructing the pre-editorial versions. Of particular note is the rhetorical, rather than strictly syntactic, punctuation in the original. The restored text is presented uninterrupted for the convenience of readers and literary critics. The back matter includes historical and textual introduction, comments on the illustrations (Thackeray's own) and exhaustive lists of authorial and editorial changes.
