In The Childrens Book Business, Lissa Paul constructs a new kind of book biography. By focusing on Eliza Fenwicks1805 product-placement novel, Visits to the Juvenile Library, in the context of Marjorie Moons 1990 bibliography, Benjamin Tabarts Juvenile Library, Paul explains how twenty-first century cultural sensibilities are informed by late eighteenth-century attitudes towards children, reading, knowledge, and publishing. The thinking, knowing children of the Enlightenment, she argues, are models for present day technologically-connected, socially-conscious children; the increasingly obsolete images of Romantic innocent and ignorant children are bracketed between the two periods. By drawing on recent scholarship in several fields including book history, cultural studies, and educational theory, The Childrens Book Business provides a detailed historical picture of the landscape of some of the trade practices of early publishers, and explains how they developed in concert with the progressive pedagogies of several female authors, including Eliza Fenwick, Mary Wollstonecraft, Anna Barbauld, Maria Edgeworth, and Ann and Jane Taylor. Pauls revisionist reading of the history of childrens literature will be of interest to scholars working in eighteenth-century studies, book history, childhood studies, cultural studies, educational history, and childrens literature.
