the people’s edition ofOn Liberty (first published in 1865, with stereotyped reissues thereafter) agrees substantively with the 3rd Library Edition (1864), except in the readings given below, none of which appears in the 4th Library Edition (1869), the copy-text for the present edition. (In the two cases, 234b-b and 243d-d, where 1864 and 1869 differ, the People’s Edition agrees with 1864.) In the following list (which, as throughout this volume, includes changes in italicization as substantives), after the page and line references, the first reading is that of 1869; the second, after a bracket, is that of the People’s Edition, with the page and column reference to the latter in parentheses.
