Abstract

Ever since the mid twentieth century, an array of competing editions of James’s fourth novel has offered readers a choice of formats and price points. Today one can select from a variety of softbound, hardbound, and electronic editions, ranging from the Library of America’s Henry James: Novels 1871-1880 on the high end, to the affordable excellence of the Penguin Classics and Oxford World’s Classics, to digital texts professionally produced for e-readers. Add to these a plethora of print-on-demand versions and a host of online public-domain reprints from Project Gutenberg, Google, Internet Archive, and others, and the question arises: why a new edition of this novel, let alone a collected edition of all of James’s fiction?
