Notes:

The fourth edition of Eliot's first novel, advertised as 'new and cheaper' (and for the first time squeezed into 2 volumes instead of 3) to keep sales storming along - the first edition had appeared in February 1859 and this one less than four months later; the book would go on to sell tens of thousands of copies in its first year.
