List of Editorial Emendations

The editors list here all of their emendations of the copy-texts other than those of the kind described in the "Textual Afterword" as warranting "silent emendation." All entries begin with the page and line numbers for Yale edition readings that appear immediately to the right. The large majority of the entries end with the superseded copy-text's reading.

Entries for emendations that the editors have originated cite only the Yale edition reading and, to the right of the bracket, the copy-text's.

Emendations not originated by the editors but adopted from editions published during Douglass's lifetime fall into two classes. Those in the first identify to the right of the bracket and left of the semi-colon the emendation source; and following the semi-colon is the copy-text reading. The second class deals only with the table of contents and chapter headings for Life's "Third Part." Douglass did not include these in the copy-text. and the editors have derived the expanded second American edition. These entries conclude with only a reference to that source.

As in "Textual Notes," the symbols used for the printings in which the adopted readings first appeared are those seen in this volume's "Descriptive Bibliography": e.g., A2 for the second printing of the first American edition: B2 for the second of the second American edition: E3 for the third of the English edition; and BX1 for the first of the expanded second American edition. Asterisks direct the reader's attention to commentaries on editorial decisions provided in "Textual Notes."
