Ashgate Studies in Publishing History

Offering publishing histories of well-known works of literature, this
series is intended as a resource for book historians and for other
specialists whose scholarship and teaching are enhanced by access to a
work's publication and reception history. Features include but are not
limited to sections on the text's composition, production and marketing,
contemporary reception, textual issues, subsequent editions, and archival
resources. The series is designed to allow for flexibility in
presentation, to accommodate differences in each work's history. Proposals
on works whose publishing histories are particularly significant for what
they reveal about a writer, a cultural milieu, or the history of print
culture are especially welcome.

Proposals should take the form of either
1. a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or
2. a formal prospectus including abstract, table of contents, sample
chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number & type of
illustrations to be included, and c.v.

Please send a copy of either type of proposal to the publisher at the
following addresses:
