  • Notes:
    • first three lines of the ebook (quote): -- Transcribed from the 1901 Cassell and Company edition [...] -- Cassell's National Library -- (New Series) That edition is not in the database as of April 2018.
    • Project Gutenberg does not report, nor the ebook contain, any volume number or date of its 1901 source. The Castle of Otranto was number 10 in the original series, which may be official only in retrospect. Anyway, the ISFDB record of selections from Poe as number 15 in the New Series implies that the new is not simply a reprint of the old series under the same volume numbers.
    • This ebook contains no list of Contents, presumably following the 1901 publication. These contents follow the title page (whose vignette is the only illustration in the ebook HTML format): -- Introduction [closing "H. M."] -- Preface to the First Edition [unsigned] -- Sonnet to the Right Honourable Lady Mary Coke. [closing "H. W."] -- [the novel] There is no back material.
