About the Author

The late William Charvat was professor of English at Ohio State University and a general editor of The Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Associate professor of English at the University of Texas, Michael Winship is editor of Bibliography of American Literature.


A classic study of the antebellum publishing scene. . . the only study of its kind. . . . More and more scholars today are interested in the kinds of issues - book production, distribution, publishing geography - that Charvat was the first to deal with in a responsible way.--David S. Reynolds, author of Beneath the American Renaissance: The Subversive Imagination in the Age of Emerson and Melville

A cogent, persuasive, and interesting analysis of the mainsprings of American publishing during the formative years.--New England Quarterly Anyone who works on the history of writers and writing in the ninteenth century owes a particularly large debt to . . . Charvat's books and essays, and especially his Literary Publishing in America. . . . [These works] are the points of entry to the field.--R. Jackson Wilson, in Figures of Speech: American Writers and the Literary Marketplace from Benjamin Franklin to Emily Dickinson
