This innovative collection of essays addresses important issues in the history of the book. The multidisciplinary essays consider different aspects of the production, circulation, and consumption of printed texts, analyzing such topics as market trends, modes of publication, and the use of pseudonyms by women writers. Contributors draw on speech act, reader response and gender theory in addition to historical, narratological, materialist, and bibliographical perspectives to study authors such as Dickens, the Brontės and George Eliot.

Review:

"Anyone interested in the British book trade, the kinds of audiences who read the books, and the effects of reading will find this a very useful collection." Studies in English Literature

"Literature in the Marketplace is a valuable addition to our growing knowledge of strategies for understanding the interplay of the effects of format on author, production, and audience in the Victorian marketplace." Barbara Quinn Schmidt, Victorian Periodicals Review

"John O. Jordan's and Robert L. Patten's engaging collection of essays, Literature in the Marketplace, focuses predominantly upon the role of periodicals and serial publications in Victorian culture, with a notable concentration upon the demands of bibliosgraphic criticism itself in the editors' `Introduction' and in Simon Eliot's chapter, `Some Trends in British Book Production, 1800-1919'. The volume includes significant chapters on Victorian periodical literature...." John Kandl, The Wordsworth Circle

"...anyone who is interested in nineteenth-century English literature, its publication, dissemination and readership, will find much to reward its perusal." Clive Hurst, Dickens Quarterly

"...some excellent work. ...open some new ground, and ...illustrate the great and still growing diversity of this field of study." John Feather, SHARP News
