Abstract

In this article, Leslee Thorne-Murphy explores the concept of authorship as it relates to editing and coauthoring. She examines three editions of Charlotte M. Yonge’s Aunt Charlotte’s Stories of Bible History, noting how the volume changed from its original version published in London to two different American editions. By studying the volume’s various publication contexts alongside the editorial changes made in each edition, she finds that the portrayal of authorship implemented by Yonge and her unacknowledged editors accommodated a remarkable amount of literary borrowing, coauthoring, and editing. In essence, each edition “re-authored” its author.
