Reprint of the 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 5,370 volumes, representing 783 English and American authors. It is based upon the collection of forty-six libraries, as well as relevant manuscript archives; some 56,000 widely variant copies of the editions have been taken into account. Some of the editions listed actually precede the recognized first editions of many of the works. Originally published by The Bibliographical Society of America. Illustrated. Co-published with the British Library.
