Charles Dickens's Our Mutual Friend

Even within the context of Charles Dickens's history as a publishing innovator, Our Mutual Friend is notable for what it reveals about Dickens as an author and about Victorian publishing. Marking Dickens's return to the monthly number format after nearly a decade of writing fiction designed for weekly publication in All the Year Round, Our Mutual Friend emerged against the backdrop of his failing health, troubled relationship with Ellen Ternan, and declining reputation among contemporary critics. In his subtly argued publishing history, Sean Grass shows how these difficulties combined to make Our Mutual Friend an extraordinarily odd novel, no less in its contents and unusually heavy revisions than in its marketing by Chapman and Hall, its transformation from a serial into British and U.S. book editions, its contemporary reception by readers and reviewers, and its delightfully uneven reputation among critics in the 150 years since Dickens’s death. Enhanced by four appendices that offer contemporary accounts of the Staplehurst railway accident, information on archival materials, transcripts of all of the contemporary reviews, and a select bibliography of editions, Grass’s book shows why this last of Dickens’s finished novels continues to intrigue its readers and critics.

Information Sources in Science and Technology: A Practical Guide to Traditional and Online Use presents a selection of traditional and online methods of using information sources in science and technology, including people, organizations, literature, hosts, and databases. This text serves as a reference book that helps the reader choose sources of information and their guides, includes a routine for finding and using information, and offers tips on searching and obtaining literature in a usable form. This book is comprised of nine chapters and begins by explaining how to choose type(s) of information source that is likely to be most helpful. The chapters that follow present guides on people, organizations, and literature as sources of information. A chapter on information services focuses on those organizations that supply information or references to information that could be helpful. These services range from answering telephone queries to supplying collections of relevant documents, and from broadcast television information to direct connection with computer databases. The next chapters discuss ways of searching the literature and computer databases, obtaining literature in a usable form, and organizing and presenting information. This book concludes by considering current awareness or keeping up-to-date with information about recent developments. This monograph is intended for librarians and information officers, especially for those working in scientific or industrial environments, practicing scientists and engineers, and students associated with these professions.

Der internationale Buchmarkt befindet sich in einem tiefgreifenden Veranderungsprozess: - elektronische Produkte drangen als Buchsubstitute auf den Markt; - die zunehmende Globalisierung lasst internationale Grossverlage und riesige Buchhandelsketten einen scharfen Preis- und Verdrangungswettbewerb fuhren; - um den jungen Vertriebsweg Online-Buchhandel, der neue Kundenschichten erschliessen soll, wird ebenfalls ein hartes Ringen um Umsatze und Gewinne ausgetragen.Vor diesem Hintergrund kampft der Borsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels um die Beibehaltung der Preisbindung fur Bucher in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, in der er einen wichtigen Garant fur einen gut funktionierenden und stabilen Buchmarkt sieht. Die Europaische Kommission untersucht seit Jahren die Zulassigkeit der grenzuberschreitenden Buchpreisbindung zwischen gleichsprachigen Landern wie z.B. Grossbritannien und Irland, Frankreich, Belgien und den Niederlanden, und interessiert sich in letzter Zeit vehement fur die Situation in Deutschland und Osterreich

This book is a collection of references and allusions found in printed works published from the beginning of printing in Britain through 1640. Arranged chronologically, these references augment those first gathered by Paget Toynbee in Dante in English Literature (1909) and Britain's Tribute to Dante in Literature and Art (1921), and others since. Indeed, by his systematic study of works in The Short Title Catalogue, Jackson Boswell more than doubles the number of references previously cited.
