Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: Early English Prose Fiction contains English prose works from the period 1500-1700, by writers from the British Isles. In general, first editions have been used, except when a later edition was deemed more appropriate. Exlcuded are non-fictional prose, translations (with the exception of Argenis from Barclay's Latin) and medieval 'survivals': works written before the period but printed within it. Each work in the database is keyed in full, including all prefatory matter and annotation by the original author. Bibliographic details of each of the editions used are included as are illustrations integral to the text and errata lists.
