Web Editor's Notes on 1846-1848

Note on Dombey and Son: A full-text facsimile of the original part-issues for Dombey and Son is hosted at Project Boz.  Since the Project Boz facsimiles take the form of downloadable pdfs, it’s not possible to link to separate installments.  Under each part by month and year, therefore, we’ve linked to the separate parts at Project Gutenberg.  Under each part, we have also included the link to the Project Boz facsimiles.

Note on Vanity Fair: Facsimiles of the original part-issues of Vanity Fair are unavailable online.  We have linked here to the Project Gutenberg text, where you can read Thackeray’s “Before the Curtain,” which opened the 1848 volume edition.
