Reprint of the 1988 first edition. This encyclopedic account of the Tauchnitz firm documents and substantiates its major role as an "international institution" in spreading Anglo-American culture throughout the world. The history describes the main Tauchnitz series (1841-1943) of 5370 volumes, respresenting 783 English and American authors. It is based upon the collection of 46 libraries as well as relevant manuscipt archives: some 56,000 widely variant copies of the editions have been taken into account. Beginning with the issues of Bulwer Lytton, James Fenimore Cooper and Washington Irving, the bibliography lists numerous first editions of Dickens and other popular Victorian novelists. Some of the editions listed actually precede the recommended first editions of many of the works. Co-published with The Britiah Library. -opisanie
