A Guide to Documentary Editing, second edition

First published in 1987 and widely acclaimed, A Guide to Documentary Editing is now available in a new and completely revised edition. Drawing on the experience of dozens of editorial projects, the author details every step of the editing process as now practiced in the electronic information age—planning a project, organizing materials, evaluating and transcribing texts, applying textual and editorial conventions, and preparing the edition for the publisher. The author even makes cautious predictions about future forms of electronic documentary publication: CD-ROMs, locally available text bases, and Internet sites. In addition, the author brings up to date her survey of literature in areas such as document selection, annotation, and non-verbal sources. Editors of such historical and literary documents as correspondence, journals, diaries, financial records, professional papers, and unpublished manuscripts will find this book an indispensable companion.

Reviews

"The first book of its kind . . . strongly recommended for all academic and research libraries."—College and Research Libraries News

"The Guide provides the editing profession with an intellectual headquarters and fulcrum; it will be quoted and discussed for many years to come."—Louis Waddell, Journal of American History

"I recommend this book to anyone who is curious about the work of documentary editors, thinking about initiating a documentary editing project, or using or thinking of using the fruits of documentary projects. It is a detailed, basic, generally descriptive but sometimes prescriptive how-to guide for the preparation of historical and literary manuscripts."—Isis, reviewing a previous edition
