Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Giving readers a fascinating look deep into Victorian England, this critical edition of Walter Besant's Children of Gibeon is ideally suited to courses in Victorian literature and history. The book includes several features to aid students in understanding the novel as both a literary work and an insightful exploration of important issues in Victorian society, including the role of women, poverty, inequality, and urban development. These features include: A critical introduction Annotations explaining Victorian terminology and events Contemporary reviews of the novel Contextualizing historical documents Appendices covering literary and social contexts, working-class domestic interiors, and middle-class domesticity By immersing themselves in Besant's tale of Lady Mildred Eldridge and her two daughters, one of whom is actually adopted from her former servant, students will gain fascinating insights into Victorian life. Following the tale of Violet and Valentine, who bear a striking resemblance to one another, students participate in a literary puzzle in which the truth of their origins reveals itself to the reader even as the characters remain in the dark. The story of the two girls is also a story of Victorian London--a city torn by geographic and economic divides. The unique literary, social, and historical perspectives provided by this annotated edition also make the book suitable for classes in nineteenth-century history, material culture, and gender studies.

Excerpt from Children of Gibeon: A Novel She spoke with two pins between her lips. People of her walk in life, unless they happen to be Chinamen, always while they are standing at the washtub carry two pins in the corner of the mouth - they are not even safety pins; and the practice gives them for the time a curious thickness of speech.

Excerpt from Children of Gibeon, Vol. 1 of 3 I have learned with pain that the Rev. Free man Wills, Vicar of St. Agatha's, Shoreditch, has suffered some annoyance by being taken for the Vicar of St. Agatha's, Hoxton, whose church is mentioned in these pages. I deli berately chose the title of St. Agatha because there is no church with that name in Hoxton. Unfortunately I forgot to look through the list of churches in Shoreditch, of which Hoxton is supposed to be a part. I can only say that Mr. Freeman Wills is not the curate of St. Agatha's mentioned once or twice in these pages, nor was his the church which I had in my mind. W. B.
