Summary

Book history has developed in recent years as an increasingly dynamic, cross-disciplinary endeavour. Building on the widespread interest in material culture, visual culture, and media studies, a new vitality has been brought to this area of research. Teaching Bibliography, Textual Criticism, and Book History, an exciting and original new monograph, offers a variety of approaches to incorporating discussions of book history or print culture into graduate and undergraduate classrooms. Through twenty-five collected essays, it considers the book as a literary, historical, cultural, and aesthetic object. Given the growing popularity of book history across numerous fields, this collection represents many viewpoints and diverse backgrounds. The essays will therefore appeal to university teachers incorporating textual studies and research methods into their courses, either as a component or as a central focus.
