Release Date: 2011-12-15
Genre: Literary Criticism

Italian Literature before 1900 in English Translation provides the most complete record possible of texts from the early periods that have been translated into English, and published between 1929 and 2008. It lists works from all genres and subjects, and includes translations wherever they have appeared across the globe. In this annotated bibliography, Robin Healey covers over 5,200 distinct editions of pre-1900 Italian writings. Most entries are accompanied by useful notes providing information on authors, works, translators, and how the translations were received. Among the works by over 1,500 authors represented in this volume are hundreds of editions by Italy's most translated authors – Dante Alighieri, Machiavelli, and Boccaccio – and other hundreds which represent the author's only English translation. A significant number of entries describe works originally published in Latin. Together with Healey's Twentieth-Century Italian Literature in English Translation, this volume makes comprehensive information on translations accessible for schools, libraries, and those interested in comparative literature.

Reference and Information Services

Author: Richard E. Bopp
Publisher: ABC-CLIO
ISBN: 9781591583745
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

The Library of John Montgomerie Colonial Governor of New York and New Jersey

Author: Kevin J. Hayes
Publisher: University of Delaware Press
ISBN: 087413711X
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

"The Library of John Montgomerie reconstructs Montgomerie's library based on the surviving estate inventory at the New York Public Library." "While the inventory reveals much about Montgomerie's attitudes towards learning and literature, it is perhaps more important because most of the books are listed under purchasers' names. Those books paid for in cash are grouped together under the heading, "Cash," but those purchased on credit (most of the collection) are listed according to purchaser. This list of buyers reads like a veritable Who's Who of colonial New York and New Jersey. The group included men who would influence the two colonies for the next several decades. Though Montgomerie spent only a short time in New York and had little impact on either New York or New Jersey history, his books exerted a lasting influence on the thought of colonial New York's political and intellectual elite."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
