"[Volume] III-1 should not be confused with a spurious version published several months earlier (Monthly Review, October 1760); this has a deceptively similar title-page, but the Greek motto is different. For details and facsimile, see Monkman, "Early Editions," pp. 23–24, 34."--Monkman.
"Vol. III. press variants: line 16 p. 160 'woulda ciad' or 'would a citadel'; line 3 p. 171 'me.’' or 'me."'; line 20 p. 187 'aud' or 'and'. Of the eight possible combinations of the above, four are recorded: III-1a: woulda ciad / me.’ / aud; III-1b: woulda ciad / me." / aud; III-1c: would a citadel / me.’ / and; III-1d: would a citadel / me." / and. Vol. IV catchword on p. 19 '’Tis' or 'There’s' (Monkman)."--ESTC.
Volume 3: "Catchwords: C2b–D4a: The Latin text and English translation of the Curse of Ernulphus are printed on facing pages, with the catchwords keyed to the languages; but the Latin one on D2b is lacking."--Monkman.
Volume 3: "The frontispiece for the first edition was engraved by Simon François Ravenet [after Hogarth]... Because the frontispiece is keyed to an incident in IV, it is sometimes found bound in that volume; it is, however, conjugate with A8 of III-1."--Monkman.
"A marbled leaf is inserted between [leaves] L4-L5 in vol. 3, forming pp. 169-170."--ESTC.
"There is a concealed second edition of vol. IV in 1761; this is easily distinguished by the correct spelling of 'fancy' on p. 73; in the first edition it is mis-spelt 'facy'."--ESTC.
Volume 4 has a half-title.
Volume 4: "As the text makes plain, Sterne intentionally omitted CHAP. XXIV and in consequence 'a chasm of ten pages'; but the printer has mistakenly omitted only nine."--Monkman.
