NOTE TO THE THIRD EDITION

  • I avail myself of the opportunity which a third edition of “Jane Eyre” affords
  • me, of again addressing a word to the Public, to explain that my claim to the
  • title of novelist rests on this one work alone.  If, therefore, the authorship
  • of other works of fiction has been attributed to me, an honour is awarded
  • where it is not merited; and consequently, denied where it is justly due.
  • This explanation will serve to rectify mistakes which may already have been
  • made, and to prevent future errors.
  • CURRER BELL.
  • _April_ 13 _th_ , 1848.
