Putnam, George Haven


Authors and Their Public in Ancient Times




G. P. Putnam's Sons




New York and London






1st edition






Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"The following pages, as originally written, were planned to form a preliminary chapter, or general introduction, to a history of the origin and development of property in literature, a subject in which I have for some time interested myself. The progress of the history has, however, been so seriously hampered by engrossing business cares, and also by an increasing necessity for economizing eyesight, that the date of its completion remains very uncertain. I do not relinquish the hope of being able to place before the public (or at least of that small portion of the public which may be interested in the subject) at some future date, the work as first planned, which shall present a sketch of the development of property in literature from the invention of printing to the present day, but I have decided to publish in a
separate volume this preliminary study of the literary conditions which obtained in ancient times."
