An interesting episode of the Biblio File podcast (http://nigelbeale.libsyn.com/) which deals with a large range of topics, author, book seller, bibliographers, etc. interviews.

This one is with Professor Iain Stevenson on the history of 20th Century British Publishing Houses and has some interesting comments on George Allen, G&AU and Sir Stanley Unwin.

Iain Stevenson has worked with Longman, Macmillan, Pinter, Leicester University Press, Wiley, and The Stationery Office. In 1986 he founded the environmental publisher Belhaven Press. He created the award winning MA in Publishing Studies at City University London and was a Professor in the Department of Journalism and Publishing there between 1999 and 2006. He is active on the governing and advisory board of the Publishers Association. Current research is centred upon the history of British publishing and the applications of new technology in publishing, especially e-books and alternatives to the printed monograph in academic and scholarly communication. We met recently to talk about his excellent new book, Book Makers: British Publishing in the Twentieth Century, published by British Library.

Anyone ever seen any of these before and know anything more about them (£75 is a lot for a cracker)?

I pointed out the mistake.

"Hi and thanks for the question. It seems I did make a mistake, that picture is not in this book. You see I happen to have a copy of the First US edition for sale as well and it seems I accidentally loaded that picture onto this ad by mistake. I have just took that picture down (I also checked all the other pictures on this ad and they are all correct). Thank you for bringing the mistake to my attention. If you have any other questions please feel free to write. Best Regards, Jason"

On tonight on BBC 4 at 9pm BST and for UK members will be on the BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.

"Hundreds of years ago in faraway Iceland the Vikings began to write down dozens of stories called sagas - sweeping narratives based on real people and real events. But as Oxford University's Janina Ramirez discovers, these sagas are not just great works of art, they are also priceless historical documents which bring to life the Viking world. Dr Ramirez travels across glaciers and through the lava fields of Iceland to the far north west of the country to find out about one of the most compelling of these stories - the Laxdaela Saga."
