the people’s edition ofConsiderations on Representative Government (first published in 1865, with stereotyped reissues thereafter) agrees substantively with the 3rd Library Edition (also 1865), except in the readings given below. The number of unique accidental readings (there are only two cases where the punctuation agrees uniquely with the 2nd Library Edition, and one where it agrees with the 1st) suggests that the People’s Edition was prepared from the 3rd edition (rather than from the 2nd), and not vice versa; therefore the following readings have some claim to authority, although in the present edition we have followed the policy of using the final Library Edition in Mill’s lifetime as copy-text. In the list below (which, as throughout this volume, includes changes in capitalization and italicization as substantives), after the page and line references, the first reading is that of the Library Edition of 1865; the second, after a bracket, is that of the People’s Edition, with the page and column reference to the latter in parentheses.
