About this book

This volume explores problems concerning the series, national development and the national canon in a range of countries and their international book-trade relationships. Studies focus on issues such as the fabrication of a national canon, and on the book in war-time, the evolution of Catholic literature, imperial traditions and colonial libraries.

Reviews

'An invaluable and engrossing re-evaluation of the Publishers Series, providing stimulating international comparisons and a lasting and important contribution to modern social and cultural history'

- James Raven, Professor in Modern History, University of Essex, UK

'The phenomenon of the publisher's series - so central to 18th and 19th-century publishing and reading practices - has never before been considered so fully. In the sheer breadth of the new material they encompass, enabling comparisons across time and space, these volumes will prove invaluable to students and scholars alike.'

- Mary Hammond, Senior Lecturer, Department of English, University of Southampton, UK
