Valancourt Books

March 28, 2009 § 2 Comments

In reference to the Northanger Canon I’ve often featured Valancourt Books on this site. Valancourt Books in an independent micro press that seeks out and publishes rare and often forgotten works from the past, including several titles in the Northanger Canon. The boys at Valancourt are doing great things for 18th century literature by editing and publishing the likes of Canon titles The Mysterious Warning, Clermont, The Castle of Wolfenbach, The Midnight Bell, The Necromancer and The Italian. Valancourt also publishes many other titles, all in beautiful editions, relevant to the era such as The Cenci by Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Two Emilys by Sophia Lee, Azemia by William Beckford (author of Gothic classic Vathek), Six Gothic Dramas, a collection from 18th century Gothic playwright Joanna Ballie, Glenarvon by Lord Byron’s one time lover Lady Caroline Lamb featuring Lamb’s characterization of the poet in the form of the titular hero, Marmaduke Herbert by famous Regency courtesan turned literary hostess and writer Marguerite, Countess of Blessington and many more from other periods, including one of my personal favorites, Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu.
You can help the Valancourt boys to keep doing their important work by joining their facebook group, reviewing their publications, recommending the publishers to your school or public librarian and of course purchasing your Georgian era titles or rare second hand books through their website.
