With an Introduction by Anne Thackeray Ritchie
The body of this novel contains a lot of footnotes and many
references to the Glossary at the end. The footnotes (which are
sometimes quite long) have been inserted in square brackets near
to the point where they were referred to by suffix in the
original text. The entries in the Glossary have been numbered,
instead of being listed with a page number as they were in the
printed book; they are also referenced with a note in square
brackets near the point where there was a suffix in the original.
Italics have been replaced by capitals.
The pound sterling symbol has been replaced by 'L'.
This text and the Introduction were taken from an edition
published by Macmillan and Co. in 1895.]
