Letter: In brief(1)

December 21, 2000

Samuel Richardson's novel was not called Clarissa Harlow , nor was it serialised in a weekly magazine over a year ("The ultimate in fantasy novels", Modern Language Association Convention supplement, THES , December 15). The book is Clarissa , and Harlowe, with an "e" is the heroine's surname. The first edition was of seven hardbound volumes - two sets of two and one of three, spaced months apart (December, April and December, 1747-1748).
