This collection of nine essays exemplifies how crucial collaboration is and will be for continued understanding of the popular novel in the Romantic literary marketplace. The essays have been divided into three sections that illuminate exciting new inroads to scholarship on the Minerva Press. ‘Minerva Genres’ illustrates the generic diversity of Lane’s publications; ‘Minerva Readers and Writers’ nuances the customary profiling of Lane’s authors and his target audience; ‘Reading Minerva with New Methods’ reassesses Minerva’s reading communities, both contemporary and more modern-day.
