About this Item

336 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. BOOKS ON BOOKS. This book traces the genesis of the Barrington books in rich and evocative detail, offering a compelling account of publishing history in England and on the continent, and displaying the subtle machinations of the book trade in a world without copyright laws. Throughout, The Celebrated George Barrington combines the rigour of book history and bibliographical research with a fresh and engaging style. Of special interest is Garvey's authoritative bibliography of the Barrington books, with extensive notes and detailed collation details, destined to become a standard reference for librarians, scholars and booksellers. With more than eighty separate works noticed, this is the first comprehensive account of the Barrington books and the first to chart the publishing history of the works about and attributed to George Barrington, which have long remained a source of confusion for students of early Australian history. Elegantly printed in two-colours, and bound in red cloth with a full-colour dustjacket, the work includes some twenty-six illustrations, all taken from the early Barrington books. Nathan Garvey was born in Dalby, Queensland. He graduated from the University of Queensland in 2000, and was awarded a doctorate from the university of Sydney in 2007. Author of a number of articles on early Australian literature and the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century book trade, he is the C. H. Currey Memorial Fellow at the State Library of New South Wales for 2008. This is his first book. "The Celebrated George Barrington is the work of a gifted researcher and literary historian, and one which stakes out a major new approach in Australian literary studies. Nathan Garvey has produced a wealth of absolutely new material about the London book trade in the 1790s and beyond." - Robert Dixon, Professor of Australian Literature at the University of Sydney and author of Prosthetic Gods: Travel, Representation and Colonial Government (Key Words: George Barrington, Nathan Garvey, Books on Books, Publishing, Australia, Bibliography, New South Wales, London Book Trade).
