Title proper taken from front matter of text

The text does not appear exactly as the Folio Society printed edition (see editorial declaration). A letter from Folio Society to University of Oxford Text Archive, February, 1990: ...the printed texts have been subjected to a further proof-reading stage which has not been incorporated into the [computer] discs.

Introduction and illustrations of printed edition not included

Insertion of vol. I in title proper: The text of the novel is complete. The first printed edition of this work was published in three volumes and the compiler of this electronic text has unwittingly included the term Volume I without making any reference to the other two volumes. The term would have been deleted altogether by the end of the final proofreading as such terms do not appear in the Folio Society's printed edition
