Mapping boarder territory neglected by scholars of high culture and of oral traditions, nine essays address the cultural significance of economical printing in Britain, the US, Pakistan, and Egypt. Among the materials they discuss are Robinson Crusoe and Gulliver's Travels as folktales, bawdy songs, jokes in early 20th-century Egyptian chapbooks, proto-photocopy lore, subversive traditions related to xeroxlore, and Catholic holy cards. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
