Hardy, T. (n.d.). Far from the Madding Crowd. Retrieved from

Preface In reprinting this story for a new edition I am reminded that it was in the chapters of Far from the Madding Crowd as they appeared month by month in a popular magazine, that I first ventured to adopt the word Wessex from the pages of early English history, and give it a fictitious significance as the existing name of the district once included in that extinct kingdom. The series of novels I projected being mainly of the kind called local, they seemed to require a territorial definition of some sort to lend unity to their scene. Finding that the area of a single country did not afford a canvas large enough for this purpose, and that there were objections to an invented name, I disinterred the old one.
