Abstract

DURING the thirties, at a time when letterpress printing was a good deal cheaper than now, the profound unwillingness of a scholarly author to have his work reproduced by the socalled nearprint processes would not get much of an argument from his editor. Even where it was demonstrable that production costs could be lowered, the author's fear that prestige and reviewsattention, in other wordsflew out the window when nearprint came in the door was largely shared by both editor and publisher of our learned journals and monograph series.
