  • Abridged English Edition of Such is Life

    A full transcription of the abridged edition and a comparison with the first edition will appear here soon. A collation of the Bulletin Publishing Company first edition (A1) and the Jonathan Cape abridged edition (E1) has been conducted using JUXTA. The text files for the abridged edition were produced with the ABBYY Fine Reader OCR program, and still require correction before the full transcription is published. Until that correction has been done, the collation of A1 and E1 with uncorrected files are provided here to illustrate the editing strategies that Nettie and Vance Palmer followed when preparing the abridged edition. Please consult a copy of E1 to quote from the abridged edition.

    *To enable collation of large text files, each chapter has been broken down into sections. These divisions has been conducted for convenience only and have no direct relation to the narrative structure. On some occasions the comparison might take a minute or two to load. Thanks for your patience.
