In Victorian Novels in Serial (NY: MLA, 1985), J. Don Vann incorrectly indicates on page 85 that the serial run of Hardy's A Laodicean began in the December, 1880, issue of Harper's, possibly because Vol. 62 begins in December. However, had he checked the individual monthly editions against the page numbers given in the table of contents for Vol. 62, he would have discovered that Part One of A Laodicean is in the January, 1881, number.
