Kegan Paul, a Victorian Imprint: Publishers, Books and Cultural History
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.
