...wedding science to commerce, philosophy to technology, and literary traditions to the newest conditions of modernity. For fashionable audiences, the Royal Institution and its successors converted the eighteenth century's discourse of ‘natural philosophy’ into a spectacular urban display of scientific know-how. Its leading light, Humphry *Davy , translated dry technicalities into star performances while instructing his audience that the inequality of property, rank, and taste was a founding precondition for scientific ‘advance’. Davy's rapturous lectures on...

...son of John’s late brother King Richard Cœur-de-Lion, who had sent Sir Robert away to Germany at the time the Bastard was conceived. The King, though recognizing by family likeness that the Bastard is indeed King Richard’s son, points out that in law he is still rightful inheritor of Sir Robert’s land, but Queen Eleanor gives her illegitimate grandson the choice between remaining a Falconbridge or renouncing his inheritance in order to be acknowledged illegitimate son of Cœur-de-Lion: he chooses the latter, and King John knights him as Sir Richard...

...should they assume that the text reflects a broader process of interaction among or negotiation between the original author (or authors), sponsors, publishers, printers, and audience? Should editors privilege a particular source document, and, if so, should that document be a MS or a copy of a printed edition? Should they consciously present the text in relation to contemporary audience tastes? These alternatives—variously prioritizing the author, the documentary witness, the sociological circumstances of production, or taste as a principle of...

...foul papers, as suggested by the lack of essential stage directions , the irregularity of the speech-prefixes , and occasional false starts and second thoughts. The second and the third quartos emended obvious compositorial mistakes and introduced new ones, which were then inherited by the 1623 Folio edition, set from an annotated copy of Q3. The main alterations introduced into the 1623 edition, including more extensive stage directions, act division , normalized speech-prefixes, and a whole new scene, the so-called fly-killing scene in Act 3,...

...text on seals and steles, as well as workers in decorative architectural wood carving, provided a ready source of labour needed to engrave the wooden blocks for books. The selective inclusion of the names of scribes and block-cutters on the woodblocks used for printing was inherited from the tradition of engraving stone tablets. Among the early single-sheet prints from Dunhuang, a block-cutter is referred to as jiangren , a general term for craftsman, together with his personal name. The names of *patrons and publishers also appeared quite early. The ...

...invites Banquo to a feast that evening and asks in detail about where he and Fleance mean to ride that afternoon. Dismissing his court, the insecure Macbeth summons two murderers, reflecting bitterly on the pointlessness of his crime if Banquo’s descendants are destined to inherit the throne. He instructs the murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance. 3.2 Lady Macbeth also feels that their achievement of an anxious throne is worthless. When Macbeth arrives, envying the dead Duncan’s freedom from fear, she urges him to feign cheerfulness at the feast. He hints...

...), Kant describes his transcendental philosophy as attempting a Copernican revolution in metaphysics. It is this revolution that, for De Quincey, gives Kant ‘the keys to a new and creative philosophy’. The original Copernican revolution turned on the conviction, against both inherited belief and the evidence of the senses, that the earth revolved around the sun. The arguments for and against Copernicus depended, at least in part, on the status ascribed to everyday perceptions (that the sun rises in the east, for example). Does perception simply register...

...one print-maker survived into modern times. This was Ross & Co., which was discovered to be still printing off some of its inheritance of copper plates in London's Hampstead Road until it moved in 1966 . It had retained many of its records, and it proved also to have inherited many of the most important plates of the eighteenth century because, as other printmakers collapsed in the nineteenth century, Ross & Co. was able to acquire the stock, which included still printable plates by Gainsborough and Stubbs . Whatever future remains for this...

...as it were, through constant repetition in terms of both knowledge and practice. Knowledge was of two kinds: what now tends to be called ‘folklore’ (and which much earlier might have been thought of as ‘cunning’, an Old English word for ‘knowing’), a comprehensive spectrum of inherited esoteric beliefs and remedies; and ‘craft’, the traditional practical knowledge or art that comprised the hard‐won (often secret) technical skills usually associated with specialized manual work. Current social practice, by contrast, was self‐regulated through established...

...to make yourself a better reader; choose simple words whenever possible to make yourself a better writer. The last part of that antithesis is hard for some wordsmiths to accept. And it needs tempering, because hard words have a legitimate literary tradition. English has inherited two strains of literary expression, both deriving ultimately from ancient Greek rhetoric. On the one hand is the plain style now in vogue, characterized by unadorned vocabulary, directness, unelaborate syntax, and earthiness. (This style is known to scholars as Atticism.) On the...
