About this Item: London: Bibliographical Society, 1939. Sm.4to, (220x170mm), [8],339p. 9 collotype plates & 7 line illustrations in the text. An excellent copy in original quarter canvas, untrimmed and partly unopened. (Myers The British book trade p343) An important study of signally interesting contribution to book trade history. William Lane, founder of the Minerva Press, was no book lover although he is significant in print culture history for his habit of founding circulating libraries in fashionable towns, he also made an early, if disguised and disreputable entry into the reprint business and fostered the taste for the Gothic novel. His Minerva Press revived old favourites by reprinting forgotten books with fresh titles which were issued as the latest thing, thereby making Lane a fortune. The text includes a chapter on the circulating libraries, and a lengthy and detailed chronological list of Minerva Press publications. Seller Inventory # 18682
