 §8. "Pendennis". IX. Thackeray. Vol. 13. The Victorian Age, Part One. The Cambridge History of English and ...
Ostensibly a biography of Arthur Pendennis, written in the third person by himself, its interest lies not so much in the hero, whose importance chiefly depends upon the close resemblance of his early career to Thackeray’s own, as in the world of individual types which passes under his eye.
The society of his sister-in-law must have been an intolerable strain upon major Pendennis, the one person who is capable of making the debonair Arthur thoroughly ashamed of himself---for Laura’s efforts are discountable in the certainty of her eventual condonation of the prodigal.
Blanche, however, is prolific in amusement, and Thackeray devoted himself to enlarging upon her traits with that power of ludicrous invention which he exercised upon the objects that diverted him most.

 BBC - h2g2 - Pendennis Castle Youth Hostel, Falmouth, Cornwall
Impressively lit-up at night, Pendennis Castle rises imposingly on a high finger of green headland jutting into the ocean, the generally kind sea on three sides providing a haven for trading and military ships harking back to Britain’s days as a formidable naval power.
Not for Pendennis Hostel is the eroding, relentless, pounding of the sea, nor is it’s demise due to the commercial pressure of competitors from Newquay and trendy Rock, it is simply this; the lease is expired, and is not to be renewed.
For the writer, having done ‘the season’ at Pendennis six years ago, in the unrelentingly gorgeous summer of 1995, this visit during the final days of this bastion, in many ways, of all that hostellers hold dear, is uniquely poignant.

 Pendennis
While the particular changes themselves are of little critical significance (and seem to be editorial in origin), the evidence they provide concerning printing practices is significant to bibliographers both textual and descriptive, to book collectors, and to printing and publishing historians.
Because the idiosyncrasies of bindings-up often resulted in mixtures of impressions within single copies of the novel and because new impressions of single numbers, as well as new general impressions, could occur, the printing history of Pendennis must be approached on the level of sheets.
The first is that readers with incomplete sets of parts made up their copies after reprints from plates became available, and the other is that the publisher continued to promote the sale of the novel in parts even after the book-form issue.
