University of Pennsylvania Press colophon
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

a c k n o w l e d g m e n t s • Chapter 4 is reprinted with slight changes from Eighteenth-Century Life 29 (2005): 76–96; a somewhat more tangled version of Chapter 5 appeared in Studies in Bibliography 51 (1998): 48–62. I thank their editors for permission to reprint here. I thank also for photo permissions the British Library, the Henry E. Huntington Library, the Doheny Library at the University of Southern California, and especially the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library in Los Angeles. I have received help of various kinds from a number of people, including, but of course not limited to, Amelia Kunhardt, Hoyt Duggan, Svetlana Dyananova, Sidney Evans, Percival Everett, Mac Gatch, Penelope Geng, Alexandra Gillespie, the Greens, Paulina Kewes, Seth Lerer, Randall McCloud, Paul Needham, Phoebe Peacock, Margaret Russett, Sandra Prior, my students, and numerous friends from Maine. I also am most grateful to Jerry Singerman and many others at the University of Pennsylvania Press for their help and support. ...
