In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

vii A Note on the Text G ilbert Parker’s The Seats of the Mighty was published by the Copp Clark Company (Toronto) and by D. Appleton and Company (New York) in 1896, both editions using the same plates. Parker’s “Prefatory Note” mentions a number of illustrations appearing in the text, but in fact they appeared on tipped-in pages in the Appleton edition only. This Early Canadian Literature edition uses the Copp Clark edition as its copytext, which is why the twelve illustrations are not reproduced here. The text was reprinted, with a number of textual emendations, as Volume 9 of The Works of Gilbert Parker, Imperial Edition, published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in 1913; that edition contained a new introduction by Parker, which is reprinted here as an appendix. The present edition also corrects obvious typographical errors, but it lets stand a number of archaic and inconsistent spellings. benjamin lefebvre, Series Editor viii Works Cited Parker, Gilbert.
