About this book

For over one hundred and fifty years, since its founding in 1843, Macmillan has been at the heart of British publishing. This collection of essays, representing recent research in the archives at the British library, examines the firms' astute business strategy during the nineteenth century, its successful expansion into overseas markets in America and India, its complex and intriguing relations with authors such as Matthew Arnold, Thomas Hardy, Alfred Lord Tennyson, W.B.Yeats, and J.M.Keynes, with additional chapters on Macmillan Magazine and the work of a modern children's editor.

Reviews

'...the range and diversity of these records are such that their material is pertinent to research into practically all aspects of publishing history. Macmillan: A Publishing Tradition is an accessible book that should appeal not only to literary and book historians and to those teaching publishing history, but also to the general reader.' - Jane Potter, New Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford - Sharp News

'Elizabeth James of the British Library has gathered a group of contributors which includes academics, archivists and former members of the Macmillan staff. What they have produced is not a history of the publishing house but a number of insights into differing aspects of the Macmillan story.' - Durrants Library and Information Update

'Combined contributions exhibit the versatility of scholarship that a near-complete publisher's archive can enable...the range of scrupulously researched individual elements of Macmillan is a fine indicator of the diverse directions of analysis and interpretation being developed by scholars of publishing history.' - Christopher Phipps, Times Higher Education Supplement
