The magisterial Oxford History of English Literature is here reissued in its entirety, so that readers can collect any volumes that they missed on first publication, and new purchasers can obtain all thirteen published volumes at once. For the purposes of the reissue certain of the volumeshave been retitled and the series has been renumbered; all volumes appear in handsome matching jackets. Of the two outstanding volumes, The Victorian Novel will be available in , (see P. 00), and The English Drama 1588-1642 will follow. Reviews of the volumes on their first publication spoke of `traditional literary scholarship at its best' and `essential basic reading for anyone who is interested in the subject'. The series - individual volumes of which can be purchased separately - should appeal to general readers and studentsalike.
