What follows are the portions of the first Czech edition of City Sister Silver that the editor and I decided to remove from my translation. In selecting which cuts to post on this Web site, my principal criterion was length. With a few exceptions, deletions of less than one full paragraph are not included here. Indents correspond to indents in the original Czech edition; where the text is set flush left it means the cut was made within a paragraph.
For those who would like to read a translation of the entire first Czech edition, we have made all deleted text available here, in translation, in a PDF format. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download it free by clicking here. If you do have Acrobat Reader, click below and you will be able to easily read, download, or print out the deletions. The Acrobat Reader will automatically open, and you can adjust the font size at the bottom, left-hand corner of the screen. It should take about 30 seconds to open the file, including the opening of the software.
