Full text available as:
This essay is the first piece of scholarship to examine the relationship between the expatriate American novelist Edith Wharton (1862-1937) and her chief British publisher, Macmillan and Co. Entirely original analysis draws extensively upon the author/publisher correspondence held in the Macmillan Archive in the British Library, and challenges existing readings of the firm's handling of women novelists in the period 1900-1930.
