Topics, names, and events are indexed and referenced not to page numbers but to book and chapter, so the index can be used easily with various printings of the 1995 edition, and almost as easily with other editions. Place names in the main index are also indexed separately. The summary of chapters allows readers to scan the action of the narrative quickly. The 1749 novel was popular and scandalous, and has remained one of the most important works of English literature.
