Review:

'Some of the most important publishing events take place quietly ... one of the landmark publications for me was the appearance of ... A Tale of a Tub and Other Works ... It's heartening to know, not just that one of our greatest writers is finally being given the editorial treatment he deserves, but that such a quixotically ambitious publishing series can still be contemplated in the digital age.' Jonathan Coe, The Guardian

Book Description:

This 2010 edition provides the first full scholarly treatment of this important work for fifty years. The detailed introduction and explanatory notes address many previously unexplained issues. Texts have been fully collated and edited according to modern principles and are accompanied with a textual introduction and full textual apparatus.
