The Panorama: Texts and Contexts of the Long Nineteenth Century

To be published with Pickering and Chatto


This four-volume scholarly edition in progress will make dozens of
printed texts associated with the panorama (eg, programs, handbills,
lectures, reviews) widely available for the first time. The collection
covers British and American material, stable and moving panoramas, the
Leicester Square Rotunda and various other more minor venues in England,
Scotland and America.


We are seeking an expert in nineteenth-century American studies to take
responsibility for work on the majority of American material, which we
expect will comprise one volume. The work involves writing section
introductions, headnotes and scholarly annotations. There may also be an
opportunity to select material.


Please contact Sibylle Erle ( ) and Laurie
Garrison ( for more information.
