Cox, Michael [Editor] - The Oxford Chronology of English Literature - ( Item 108061 )
Published in UK by Oxford. 2002. First Thus. 2 Fine Hardbacks. 4to. in two volumes with red/buckram spines, linen boards with gilt titles, pp. 1280. New in original packaging. The aim of The Oxford Chronology of English Literature is to provide a wide range of users - from scholars and students to librarians and book collectors - with a digest of the printed record of English literature 1474-2000. The aim is to enable such users to view a generous sampling of printed publications in time and in relation to other works published in the same year, or in a sequence of years. It is not intended to be a technical bibliography and does not claim to embody original bibliographical research; it is rather an extensive, carefully selected, chronologically organized checklist of significant and representative works arranged by year of imprint or of actual publication where this differs. Its value lies both in the number and range of titles selected and in the bringing together of information on individual titles from a large number of sources. The work, which is published in two volumes, contains nearly 30,000 titles from some 4,000 authors, and extensive author and titles indexes. The Chronology's primary focus is English literature, understood as works originally written in English by British authors published in Britain, though exceptions have been made for authors born elsewhere (e.g. Henry James) who made their home in Britain or some colonial authors who published principally with British publishing houses. Though works of the imagination predominate, 'non-literary' works (e.g. In religion, philosophy, economics, science, or law) are also included.
