Review of the hardback: 'Vital reading for anyone interested in the material conditions of publication in early modern England.' British Journal of Eighteenth-Century Studies
"...[a] stimulating collection..." Line Cottegines, Universite de Paris 3, Sorbonne Nouvelle, Renaissance Quarterly
"The collection...retains a sense that manuscript and print coexisted, as they continue to coexist...and provides a necessary corrective to views of women's literary history that neglect modes of literary and nonliterary self production that occurred beyond the printed page." - Emily Smith
