- The 1st edition, published as the first two volumes of a three-volume novel, the third volume being the first edition of Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey. It was published by T. C. Newby, who is renowned for poorly supervising the printing and correction of the novels that he published. This edition is no exception; it contains many errors. (Volume 1 transcription project, Volume 2 transcription project)
- The 2nd edition, posthumously edited by Charlotte Brontë and published in 1850. Charlotte Brontë corrected many errors but also made editorial changes that are not considered authoritative.
- An unsourced edition, possibly the 1910 John Murray edition from which the Project Gutenberg edition of this work is taken.
