My goal with The Biblio File is to engage authors, and others connected with 'the book,' in variously entertaining, informative, stimulating, funny, intense conversation. If you have comments or questions about the program please email me at notabenebeale@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you.

Michael Winship is a bibliographer and historian of the book – with special expertise in pre-1940 American publishing and book trade history.  He edited and completed the final three volumes of Bibliography of American Literature, for which he received the bibliography prize of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, and served as an editor of and contributor to the recently completed 5-volume A History of the Book in America. We talk here, on a windy day (hence the background static)  in Haaavud Yaaaad about collecting books published by Ticknor and Fields, later Houghton Mifflin.
 
The best book published by Ticknor and Fields: Life of William Hickling Prescott, by George Ticknor (1864)
