In Literary Partnerships and the Marketplace, David Dowling examines an often overlooked aspect of the history of publishing -- relationships, both of a business and a personal nature. The book focuses on a variety of intriguing duos of the nineteenth century, as it explores the economics of literary partnership in a typology of author/publisher, student/mentor, husband/wife, and parent/child teams.Unifying Dowling's work is the irony of the authors projecting their labors of the mind as autonomous -- an image that had a definite commercial appeal -- even as the authors relied heavily on their "literary partners" to aid them in navigating the business side of writing.
