Old books and new histories : an orientation to studies in book and print culture by Leslie Howsam( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies in the culture and history of the book are a burgeoning academic specialty. Intriguing, rigorous, and vital, they are nevertheless rooted within three major academic disciplines - history, literary studies, and bibliography - that focus respectively upon the book as a cultural transaction, a literary text, and a material artefact. Old Books and New Histories serves as a guide to this rich but sometimes confusing territory, explaining how different scholarly approaches to what may appear to be the same entity can lead to divergent questions and contradictory answers." "Rather than introduce the events and turning points in the history of book culture, or debates among its theorists, Leslie Howsam uses an array of books and articles to offer an orientation to the field in terms of disciplinary boundaries and interdisciplinary tensions. Howsam's analysis maps studies of book and print culture onto the disciplinary structure of the North American and European academic world."--Jacket
The Cambridge companion to the history of the book by Leslie Howsam( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout human history the world's knowledge, and fruits of the creative imagination, have been produced, circulated and received through the medium of the material text. This Companion provides a wide-ranging account of the history of the book and its ways of thinking about works from ancient inscription to contemporary e-books, discussing thematic, chronological and methodological aspects of this interdisciplinary field. The first section considers book cultures from local, national and global perspectives. Section two, organized around the dynamic relationship between the material book and the mutable text, develops a loosely chronological narrative from early writing, through manuscript and early printing, to the institution of a mechanized book trade, and on to the globalization of publishing and the introduction of the electronic book. A third section takes a practical turn, discussing methods, sources and approaches: bibliographical, archival and reading experience methodologies, as well as pedagogical strategies."--Page 4 of cover

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kegan Paul, a Victorian imprint : publishers, books, and cultural history by Leslie Howsam( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kegan Paul - A Victorian Imprint is a notable contribution to the scholarly discipline known as the history of the book. It is a detailed study of the establishment and growth of a Victorian publisher, and illustrates the way in which publishers acted as important gatekeepers in their culture by mediating between authors and readers, by selecting those texts that appeared in print, and by creating the physical formats in which they became familiar. The work exemplifies the way in which the history of an imprint can illuminate the cultural history of its time and place." "Kegan Paul - A Victorian Imprint will be of great interest to students of Victorian cultural and literary history, to historians of publishing and specialists in women's writing, to bibliographers and librarians and to all who love fine books."--Jacket
