Over the past twenty years, the field of scholarly editing has expanded and altered immeasurably. In Editing Documents and Texts Beth Luey has compiled for the first time 900 references from nearly 200 journals and books that explain how scholarly editors do their work and the theories behind their editing. Bridging the traditional gap between historical and literary editing, Luey surveys the relevant scholarship in all editorial fields and presents a thorough picture of the state of the discipline. Anyone interested in the editing of documents and texts--whether an undergraduate or graduate student, instructor, or a beginning or experienced editor--will find Editing Documents and Texts an indispensible reference.
