Some textual changes /Justine /1957 versus /Justine /1962/ /to consider:

    * That summer Pombal decided to let his flat to Pursewarden]  
      Thinking of that summer when Pombal decided to let his flat to
      Pursewarden (1.24)
       
    * He was little, fattish and blond]   He was clever, tallish, and
      blond (1.24)


The obvious observation is that LD was altering chronology and character 
to better match what he had written in the other books of the 
/Quartet/.  But beyond the historical fact of the variant, what changes 
here with a sense of time and the reader's early and later impression of 
Pursewarden?
