Purposing and Repurposing Books from Richard Baxter to Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Edited by Tessa Whitehouse and N. H. Keeble

  • Examines the ways in which books in the period from 1660 to 1830 were used and reproduced in different editions, abridgments, anthologies, and translations that in effect created new books
  • Looks at the mutability and variability of texts as they are turned to new ends by a variety of agents and means
  • Studies a range of genres and kinds of publication as well as the work of Lucy Hutchinson, Richard Baxter, John Dryden, Thomas Burnet, John Tillotson, Henry Maundrell, Jonathan Swift, Samuel Richardson, John Wesley, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge
  • Explores the impact of cultural and religious factors as well as commercial and technological impacts on book history
