"The text printed in this volume is taken from the "Charles Dickens" Edition of Dickens's Works issued in 1868-1870. Dickens himself revised this edition for the press, striking out or altering words here and there and making extensive changes in punctuation. A few indisputable misprints which escaped his eye have now been corrected. The captions written by Dickens to go at the head of right-hand pages in the "Charles Dickens" Edition are printed in the magins of this volume against the relevant passages. The illustrations are printed from the plates etched for the original edition."--Page vii.
