Summary
  • "This ground-breaking collection of essays presents a new bookish literary history, which situates questions about books at the intersection of a range of debates about the role of authors and readers, the organization of knowledge, the vogue for collecting, and the impact of overlapping technologies of writing and shifting generic boundaries"--Provided by publisher
  • Bookish Histories presents a new 'bookish' approach to the literary history of eighteenth and nineteenth-century Britain. Concentrating on overlooked dimensions of literary practice and production during the period when printed matter became incorporated into everyday life, the essays in the volume bring together book history, cultural history, and literary studies to expand our understanding of books in modernity. Gathering together leading scholars, the volume represents a collective rethinking of the making of the modern literary field as they reflect on topics such as the repositioning of authors in the literary market, the development of intimate reading routines, changing book practices, transformations in print genres, and experiments in publishing
