Comparison of Editions
Choose a favorite work of literature and bring to class two different editions of the work.† In preparation for the class, identify the following things for each edition:
Title, Author, Editor, Editorís credentials, Place of publication, Publisher, Date(s) of publication (complete with reprints), total number of pages, indication of illustrations or maps.† List the table of contents, describing any extra-textual materials (introductions, prefaces, bibliographies, appendixes, annotation, etc.).† Most importantly, record the source text(s) for the edition and all relevant textual information.
After examining and recording these details, write a summary statement of the differences.†
