This suggests to me that the forward to PbHH was written later than the rest of
the novel.  In it, Wolfe writes (as Pandora): "This just one that took a long
time to sell. (Except in France, so _vive la France!_....)"  Was Pandora
published originally in France, in any form?  I couldn't find any evidence in
the usual sources, and I didn't find anything from a quick google search.  It
seems an odd thing to write if it's not true, but it wouldn't be the first time
one of Wolfe's narrator's was less than truthful.
