The Wessex Edition. For this edition, Hardy revised his novels throughout for the last time, correcting a few errors and adding an occasional footnote, etc. The task was a fairly exacting one, and in the General Preface printed in the first volume, Hardy explains the classification of his novels, revealing his estimation of their merits for the first time.
