Web Editor's Notes on 1859-1861


Note on The Woman in White: The facsimile of All the Year Round hosted at DOJ.org differs in places from the record of chapter publication dates in J. Don Vann’s Victorian Novels in Serial (1985), which has been a primary source of data for VictorianSerialNovels.org.  A majority of the discrepancies occur within the Walter Hartright’s Narrative sections.  For instance, whereas Vann shows Chapters 1-4 of The Woman in White (Volume Edition) appearing in All the Year Round on 26 November, 1859, the facsimile of the original magazine hosted at DOJ.org shows only Chapters 1-3 appearing on that date, with Chapter 4 appearing on 3 December, 1859.  We have chosen to use DOJ.org’s facsimile’s dates for our links here, and we have placed asterisks on the sections in which discrepancies occur between the facsimile and Vann’s record.

Note on Framley Parsonage: The Project Gutenberg text numbers all chapters after Volume 1 according to the One-Volume edition.  Volume 2, Chapter 1 will be labeled there as Chapter 17, and so on.  VictorianSerialNovels.org has preserved the original volume and chapter demarcations in links so as to accurately reflect the original serial publication in Cornhill Magazine.  The Librivox audio chapter numbers also correspond to the One-Volume edition.
