By David Smit......................................................................................219 Index to Volume IV.....................................................................................................231 From the Editor This is a special issue of the Henry James Review, even though it is not officially designated as such—special, above all, because here we print at last the EdelTintner "Library of Henry James," a major research tool—an indispensable scholarly resource—that has been more than fifty years in the making, going back to 1931, when William James's son Henry ordered that an inventory be drawn up of the books in his uncle's Lamb House library. We take pleasure in the thought of the many uses future scholars will make of this list and in the further thought that without the Henry James Review the library list would probably still be unavailable. This is also a special issue because, as our regular readers will have already noticed, we have once again changed our format. The copy you are reading now is still the product of photo-offset printing of camera-ready copy created by a wordprocessor and printer in the College of Arts & Sciences at LSU. But we have a new word-processor in our Text Processing Center, an NBI that replaces our old Lanier system. The NBI makes it easy to format a text in two columns; read on and you will find the texts of the articles here far easier to scan than articles in our old format, in which the text ran all the way across the page. Also, the NBI system is linked to a Diablo proportional printer: thus, the text that you are now reading has true proportional spacing. Compare it to the typewriter -style spacing in our old issues, and you'll see the improvement. There is an economic advantage as well: these new, more readable pages contain more words, because of the proportional printing, than the old HJR pages. To match the superior output of the new printer, we have gone to type-set (rather than word-processed) titles. Thanks for making these improvements possible go to our dean, Henry L. Snyder, to Sharon Roberts, who does nearly all of the word-processing for the HJR, and Volume IV 156 Number 3 The Henry James Review Spring 1983 to her supervisor, Diane Miller. Another change that you will notice as you read this issue is that we have adopted (and slightly adapted) the new method of citation exemplified in recent issues of PMLA. AU notes are end-notes, and they are restricted to substantive comments. All citations are brief parenthetical references to a list of works printed at the end of each article. Our adaptation of the MLA system is that we have added a separate "Key to Works by Henry James" at the end of each essay. Authors preparing work for submission to the HJR are urged to study the current issue as well as recent issues of PMLA and to style their manuscripts accordingly. ANNOUNCEMENTS HJS Meetings in 1983 President Daniel Fineman has arranged two James Society sessions for next December's MLA meeting in New York, plus a separate business session. One meeting, on psychological approaches to HJ, will be moderated by Michael Sprinker. Papers will be read by Dennis Foster, W. A. Johnsen, Mimi Kairschner, Bruce Robbins, Mark Seltzer, and Susan Winnett. HJS Meeting in 1983 William T. Stafford, James Society President for 1984, has issued an early call for papers on the topic "Feminist Attitudes Toward Henry James." Papers of nine to eleven pages should be sent to Professor Stafford (English Department, Purdue Univ., W. Lafayette, IN 47906) by December 1, 1983. Participants will be strictly limited to twenty...
