The passage suggests that which of the following is frequently true of the title pages of early-nineteenth-century English novels?
The attribution of early-nineteenth-century English fiction is notoriously problematic. Fewer than half of new novels published in Britain between 1800 and 1829 had the author's true name printed on the title page. Most of these titles have subsequently been attributed, either through the author's own acknowledgement of a previously anonymous or pseudonymous work, or through the author's own bibliographical research. One important tool available to researchers is the list of earlier works "by the author" often found on title pages. But such lists are as likely to create new confusion as they are to solve old problems. Title pages were generally prepared last in the publication process, often without full authorial assent, and in the last-minute rush to press, mistakes were frequently made.
The title page was prepared for printing in a hurried manner., Material on the title page was included without the author’s knowledge or approval., Information on the title page was deliberately falsified to make the novel more marketable.
