Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author is founder of the Society for Textual Scholarship. He writes to emphasize the continuities in the several parts of textual scholarship and to present the field in terms of a single narrative--a sequence from the discovery and enumeration of the text, to the history of its production, to its transcription and rendering into another medium (the modern typeset page), to its editing and its elucidation by annotation and commentary.
