Edited by Ruth Panofsky (Ryerson University) and sponsored by the Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC), Authors, Publishers, Readers, Texts: Studies in Book History and Print Culture will publish new scholarship in the fields of bibliography, book history, and print culture broadly defined. The first book in the series is expected to appear in 2021.
Founded in 1947, the BSC is a national, bilingual scholarly association that promotes the study of the history, description, and transmission of texts in all media and formats, with a primary emphasis on Canada. Starting in the late-1940s until the mid-1970s, the BSC published a number of bibliographies, facsimiles of early Canadian printing and publishing, and wider studies of Canadian book culture. This new series will reanimate the BSC’s important work in book historical and bibliographical research. Books in Authors, Publishers, Readers, Texts will not be geographically or thematically restricted, but, like the BSC itself, will have an particular interest in Canadian topics and projects. Titles will be published as appropriate in English or French. Membership in the BSC is not a requirement for authors or editors. Those interested in submitting to the series should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
