This appendix gives variant substantive readings in the Methuen 1914 first edition of Chance. Pagination refers to the present edition, which in these instances is identical to the Heinemann edition, except where otherwise indicated.
Obvious misprints in Methuen (e.g. 'Mrs. Powell') are not noted here, nor are differences in the hyphenation of words, lineation of direct speech, or the capitalization of, for example, 'Shipping Office'. Significant variations in capitalization are noted, however.
Similarly, the variant spellings or separation of words such as 'any one/anyone', 'further/farther', 'look out/ lookout', and 'fullness/fulness' are ignored. Differences in the use of the question mark are given only when they possibly alter the meaning of the sentence.
