differ, edition 11 more closely follows the undated reprint. 

 

In edition 11, underscores are used to denote words and phrases 

italicized for emphasis. 

 

There is a section of text in book 2, chapter 3, beginning with "When 

Vanity kissed Vanity," which is referred to as "poetry" but is formatted 

as prose. 

 

I considered, but decided against introducing an 8-bit version of 

edition 11, in large part because the bulk of the 8-bit usage (as found 

in the 1960 reprint) consists of words commonly used in their 7-bit 

form: 

 

Aeschylus blase cafe debut debutante elan elite Encyclopaedia 

matinee minutiae paean regime soupcon unaesthetic 

 

Less-commonly-used 8-bit word forms in this book include: 

 

anaemic bleme coeur manoeuvered mediaevalist tete-a-tete 

and the name "Borge".
