This study of some of the central questions in literary publishing in mid-nineteenth-century North America and Britain is addressed through examination of the unusually rich archives of one of the preeminent literary publishers of the time. Michael Winship analyzes the records and publications of Boston-based Ticknor and Fields, revealing how its books were produced, marketed and distributed, and the extent of its expenses and profits. He goes on to show how an investigation of Ticknor and Fields enriches our understanding of the literary and cultural history of North America and Britain.
