Surtees, R. S. (n.d.). Handley Cross; Or, Mr. Jorrocks's Hunt. Retrieved from

Preface: Mr. Jorrocks, having for many years maintained his popularity, it is hoped that, with the aid of the illustrations, he is now destined for longevity. The Author, in the present edition, not being tied to space or quantity, has had a better opportunity of developing his sporting hero than before. The reader will have the kindness to bear in mind, that the work merely professes to be a tale, and does not aspire to the dignity of a novel.
