Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: The Eighteenth-Century Fiction database contains works in English prose from the period 1700 to 1780, by writers from the British Isles. Each text is reproduced in full, including all prefatory matter and annotation by the original author. Bibliographic details, illustrations and errata lists are included from each of the editions used. In general, first editions of texts were used. In certain cases a later edition was judged more suitable. A few works, such as Clarissa, have been reproduced twice in different editions, to allow for extensive authorial revisions. The first London edition of Tristram Shandy is included in both a fully searchable text version and in scanned image form, to capture all of its visual idiosyncrasies.
