As the new Field Editor for Bibliography and Textual Studies for _The
Eighteenth Century: A Current Bibliography_ (ECCB), I am soliciting
reviews of the following books, book chapters, and journal articles, for
a forthcoming volume of ECCB, to be published in 2004 (see list below).
ECCB, published by AMS Press, is an annual compilation of
bibliographical information and reviews covering the widest possible
range of recent books in eighteenth-century literature, textual studies,
history, economics, art, music, philosophy, religion, and history of
science. It is an invaluable resource to scholars in the field and to
university libraries, and is read by faculty and students worldwide and
from a variety of disciplines.
