Missing elements[edit]

This novel appears to be missing a lot of the additional material, such as notes and dedication, that are part of the Gutenberg text. However, I have not been able to identify the source of the Gutenberg transcription at this time. At least there is no direct match on the Internet Archive. So I can't check if Gutenberg omitted anything either. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 17:14, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

I added the Advertisement and Dedicatory Epistle as they appear in 1820 edition on Google Books. I've proofread it once, but I'm sure it could use an extra pair of eyes. A "third edition", dated 1821 and also on Google Books, omits the Advertisement but preserves the Epistle. I found at least one alteration by way of the change of a title and the inclusion of a new footnote therewith in this 1844 edition. The text of the Epistle itself alludes to end materials that might be included in the third and final volume, though I suspect that this was merely Scott's tongue-in-cheek manner of obscuring the fictitious nature of the "Wardour Manuscript" with hollow promises of future excerpts. —Ivanhoe (talk) 19:03, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
