"This series provides a forum for studies that consider the material forms of texts as part of an investigation into early modern culture". The series' editors welcome original work that is interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary in nature and they particularly encourage efforts that "combine archival research with an attention to the theoretical models that might illuminate the reading, writing, and making of texts, as well as projects that take innovative approaches to the study of material texts, both in terms the kinds of primary materials under investigation, and in terms of methodologies". Topics that the series generally aims to cover are: history of the book, print culture, manuscript studies, the social aspects of writing, archiving, orality, and the like. Currently, the series has 11 volumes.
