Wrong spelling of title?[edit]

Shouldn't the page be called "Love and Freindship"? I know that "friendship" is the "correct" spelling of the word, but "freindship" is the spelling that Jane Austen used, and as far as I know, it's preserved in all printed editions. Cowardly Lion 17:38, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, Wikipedia confirms it!  :-)
Do you know how to move pages? It's the "move" button at the top of each page.
Move it to Love and Freindship, add "{{similar|Love and Friendship}}" above the header, and update Love and Friendship. John Vandenberg 18:20, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Done. Thanks for the help, especially in telling me about {{similar|Love and Friendship}}, which I wouldn't have been able to work out. Cowardly Lion 19:04, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Looks good. The next thing to be done is to record that Wikipedia has an article where the reader can find out more. To do this, edit "Love and Freindship", and where you see "notes = ", change it to
notes = '''Love and Freindship''' is a ....... short little blah .....{{wikipediaref|Love and Freindship}}
See The Count of Monte Cristo for an example. John Vandenberg 19:43, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. I'll do that at the weekend. I may not be online much tomorrow. Cowardly Lion 20:02, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
And I suppose I ought to do something like that for Middlemarch as well, when I get time? Cowardly Lion 20:43, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes, the terse intro's with links to Wikipedia should be added whenever they are missing. John Vandenberg 01:21, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

I have serious doubt about that. [1] [2] [3] [4] I think that most expect to find the book under the corrected spelling. Yann 11:24, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Its real name is "Love and Freindship" - calling it "Love and Friendship" is weird. see w:Love and Freindship. John Vandenberg (chat) 11:18, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

converted to scan[edit]

This was moved by match and split to an edition prefaced by Chesterton, see title page, and I note that the Gutenberg [?] text was significantly different. We could restore that version, if anyone is interested; I disposed of it in the page namespace so any errors are ocr or mine. I subpaged it to this edition, and am moving the bogus arrangement of these works under other titles. Cygnis insignis (talk) 19:38, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
