Notes

First one-volume edition, handsomely bound. Dickens's second novel, Oliver Twist was first published serially between February 1837 and April 1839 in Bentley's Miscellany, and as a three-volume book by Richard Bentley in 1838 (six months before the initial serialization was complete). This single volume was substantially revised by Dickens, who had bought back his copyright from Bentley; many of his revisions were in the direction of a more dramatic rendering of the text, in light of his experience of public reading.
