About this product Product Information At the turn of the nineteenth century, publishing houses in London, New York, Paris, Stuttgart, and Berlin produced books in ever greater numbers. But it was not just the advent of mass printing that created the era's "bookish" culture. According to Andrew Piper, romantic writing and romantic writers played a crucial role in adjusting readers to this increasingly international and overflowing literary environment.
Examining novels, critical editions, gift books, translations, and illustrated books, as well as the communities who made them, Dreaming in Books tells a wide-ranging story of the book's identity at the turn of the nineteenth century. In so doing, it shows how many of the most pressing modern communicative concerns are not unique to the digital age but emerged with a particular sense of urgency during the bookish upheavals of the romantic era.
In revisiting the book's rise through the prism of romantic literature, Piper aims to revise our assumptions about romanticism, the medium of the printed book, and, ultimately, the future of the book in our so-called digital age. Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. His critical voice is at once erudite and enthusiastic, his method both descriptive and allegorical. With remarkable intellectual agility, he moves from the center to the periphery of the canon, from literature in the inherited sense of the term to science to scholarship, and from past to present.
Under his gaze, dedications, editions, translations, and, especially, the practices surrounding them become the focus of compelling cultural-historical insight.

Romanticism emerges here as stranger than we had ever thought and yet surprisingly close to contemporary concerns. A fine achievement. With its scope and meticulous research, it documents the way the technologies of book production become ways to structure culture itself, and shows how the dawn of mass communication made books part of human relationships.

This book itself will be of lasting value to scholars of book history, Romanticism, and literary studies. Winter Reading List. By Rebecca Rego Barry on December 26, One reason I look forward to Christmas is that I'll stock up on winter reading. Every year for the past few years, my mother-in-law graciously buys my "want list" of current fiction and non-fiction, wraps them beautifully, and presents them in a gorgeous bag this year, a designer fabric bag by Stephanie Barnes.
An Object-Oriented Ontology of Media through Don Juan
This is an amazing gift, because while I do buy "new" books throughout the year binge at the Harvard Bookstore for my birthday in the spring , and I receive about two dozen books from publishers for review, I don't often splurge the time or money on bedside reading. So I've taken to keeping a list of books I know I want to read but can wait until Christmas to get.
This year, I asked for ten titles, and ten I did receive. As you'll see, books about books and literary fiction are my main genres. Some were recommended by others, some I learned about through reviews, and some are part of "collections" within my library. In Non-fiction This is a book about women's reading practices in the late 19th and early 20th century.
