All of Elizabeth Gaskell's longer works and collections of her stories are currently available in paperback editions. The "Knutsford" edition of her collected works (8 vols, 1906) while not entirely complete or textually reliable, was produced by her original publisher, Smith Elder & C0., and thus maintains a link with her lifetime. The "Pickering Masters' Edition (General Editor Joanne Shattock, 10 vols, 2005-6) is a complete scholarly edition, with introduction by individual Gaskell scholars, textual variations and notes.
