Chameleon, entertainer, actor, and iconoclast. It would be difficult to think of a rock star who had a more varied and influential career than David Bowie and the list of bands and musicians who have been influenced by Bowie reads like an A to Z of popular music. But Bowie himself skilfully and consistently maintained his credibility as the most innovative performer of his generation by staying one jump ahead of the many who sought to imitate him. Classic Tracks - David Bowie explores this icon in detail. While his many artistic incarnations are known, few knew David Bowie the man, and as this book will show, through its exploration of his diverse body of work, the only real constant factors in his career was his incredible voice, his imagination and his supreme talent for artistic reincarnation. Every track of each of his albums is examined in great detail, giving you an insight to both the music, and the enigmatic man who created it.

The fifty-ninth volume of "Studies in Bibliography" continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books.

This volume opens with an excerpt from a forthcoming memoir by the eminent bibliographical and textual scholar G. Thomas Tanselle. Articles range in topic from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century and from manuscript production to the distribution of books by American bookstores. In a tour de force of bibliographical analysis, one piece examines the implications of inked pages that leave their images on adjacent leaves, and another provides new insights into the vexed question of the canon of Daniel Defoe. An advertisement for an early piracy of writings by Mark Twain and Bret Harte provides a springboard for a deeply contextual essay that demonstrates the complex interrelationships of the world of publishing and authorship, while another article on nineteenth-century books brings to light rare bindings issued by a major English publisher.

Among the articles and their authors are:

"Extracts from The Living Room: A Memoir," G. Thomas Tanselle, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation; "Merton College, MS 68: Production and Texts," Ralph Hanna, Keble College, Oxford; "Beyond Furbank and Owens: A New Consideration of the Evidence for the 'Defoe' Canon," Ashley Marshall, University of Nevada, Reno; "Offset Evidence in Edward Young's The Centaur Not Fabulous," James E. May, Penn State University, DuBois; "Mark Twain and Bret Harte: A Mysterious Early Piracy in Context," Richard Bucci, Mark Twain Project; "Wilkie Collins in Smith, Elder Boards 1865-66," Geoffrey Hargreaves; "Directories of American Bookstores to 1950: Addenda & Corrigenda," Michael Winship, University of Texas at Austin.

Attractively packaged in glossy colour sleeves and often containing rare material, EPs also rapidly acquired a following among discerning music fans and record collectors that continues to the present day.

Across the genres, across the generations, across the board, this book presents over one hundred inspirational albums by women, from top-selling hits to the indie and obscure. Classic Album Sundays - the world's most popular album listening event and content platform - initiated an #AlbumsByWomen campaign in support of International Women's Day 2018. The hashtag soon grew into a movement, devoted to women's musicality and the power of the female voice. Collaborators shared photographs and commentary on their favourite albums by female artists, gathered together here in a single volume. Pick up any other book on the theme of 'Albums You Must Hear Before You Die', and you'll confront a heavy gender bias. This project redresses the gender imbalance: an overdue celebration of women's creativity and musicianship within a male-dominated sphere. It features over a hundred submissions from high-profile musicians including Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, Peter Hook, Nina Kraviz, Black Madonna, Gilles Peterson, Rankin, KT Tunstall, John Grant and more.

The fifty-eighth volume of Studies continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books. The volume begins with an essay examining an issue fundamental to all scholarly editing, the relationship between thoughts and the tangible records of those thoughts in physical documents. Three articles address the role of intermediaries between writers and readers: the contribution of one of the best-known medieval scribes to the texts he was copying, the use of speech prefixes in the plays of Shakespeare as a guide to the source from which the editions were set in type, and the phenomenon of basing printed editions of early English plays on shorthand transcriptions of actual performances. A related piece identifies directories of American bookstores in order to cast light on the insufficiently known process by which books moved from publishers to readers from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Other articles present a little-known set of regulations governing the conduct of workers in an English printing house around 1700 and trace the nineteenth-century development of a great Dante collection. The volume also includes another magisterial study of early book jackets by G. Thomas Tanselle, this time extending the examination into their florescence in the 1890s. The articles and their authors are: ""Mind and Textual Matter,"" Richard Bucci, Mark Twain Project; ""Scribal Intentions in Medieval Romance: A Case Study of Robert Thornton,"" John Ivor Carlson, Yale University; ""Compositor B's Speech-prefixes in the First Folio of Shakespeare and the Question of Copy for 2 Henry IV,"" S. W. Reid, Kent State University; ""Memorial Transmission, Shorthand, and John of Bordeaux."" Gerald E. Downs; ""The Bagford Chapel Rules: An Unknown Set of English Printing House Regulations from the Late 1600s or Early 1700s."" Alan D. Boehm, Middle Tennessee State University; ""'The Tragedy of the Book Industry'? Bookstores and Book Distribution in the United States to 1950,"" Michael Winship, University of Texas; ""Collecting Dante from Tuscany: The Formation of the Fiske Dante Collection at Cornell University,"" Christian Dupont, Independent Scholar; and, ""Book Jackets of the 1890s,"" G.

The fifty-seventh volume of ""Studies"" continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books. The essays extend chronologically from the identification of Middle English poetry in early prose documents to an analysis of revisions in a post-modern novel. Their geographical span is also broad, ranging from a study of an English play with revisions sometimes believed to be in Shakespeare's hand to trendsetting g innovations in early Italian printing and to the history of Henry Fielding's writings in China. The opening essay, by G. Thomas Tanselle, expands the scope thematically as well by applying principles of textual criticism of verbal works to the visual and aural arts. Two major studies refine significant bibliographical accomplishments of the past by examining anew the printing of Spenser's Faerie Queene and the paper of Shakespeare's plays in quarto. The volume also includes another contribution to the series on great bibliographers. Other important essays provide Mary Astell's manuscript revisions for one of her works, consider the implications of bibliographical insights for the understanding of literary history, and analyze a controversial theory of attribution.

Quintessentially British, Genesis spearheaded progressive rock in the 1970s, evolving into a chart-topping success through the end of the millennium. Influencing rock groups such as Radiohead, Phish, and Pink Floyd, the experimental format of Genesis' songs provided new avenues for music to explore. From the 23-minute masterpiece "Supper's Ready," via the sublime beauty of "Ripples" and the bold experimentation of "Mama", to hits such as "Invisible Touch" and "I Can't Dance," their material was inventive and unique. This book is the chronological history of the band, with critical analysis and key details of each of the 204 songs Genesis recorded and released.

The College of Corpus Christi, Oxford, was a 'Renaissance' institution both as to its foundation date (1517) and the intention of its founder, Richard Fox, bishop of Winchester. Both Fox himself and his choice as the College's first President, John Claymond, were friends of Erasmus, who approved of the foundation and especially of its library. Fox intended his foundation to be a conduit of Italian humanism to Oxford and to the English clergy. In its extraordinary variety, this collection is a challenge to the cataloguer. Some manuscripts relate to the programme of the College's founder and first President, but most of the manuscripts reflect the particular interests of collectors from the late sixteenth century onwards. John Dee's books for example, mostly small, unpretentious and often fragmentary or made up of fragments, constitute a gold-mine for the historian of medieval chemistry and alchemy. These are supplemented by an important group of astronomical, arithmetical and medical texts. There is a substantial clutch of twelfth- and thirteenth-century manuscripts from Lanthony Priory. Noteworthy, too, is the large number of manuscripts in several vernaculars: Old and Middle English and French, Old Irish, Catalan, and even a few words of fifteenth-century Czech. The bindings of the Corpus manuscripts have been wholly neglected. Many books retain important medieval bindings, some as early as the twelfth century, and a substantial number of beautiful blind-stamped bindings of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. A special place in the collection is occupied by the approximately 1, 200 manuscript fragments, taken from bindings of books in the library in the late nineteenth century.

The fifty-sixth volume of Studies continues its tradition of presenting a wide range of articles by international scholars on bibliography, textual criticism, and other aspects of the study of books. The volume opens with a historical consideration of the role of judgment in editing and a prognosis for its future. In a sequel to his 1971 article on the history of book jackets, G. Thomas Tanselle surveys the growing recognition of the importance of jackets over the past thirty-four years and provides a greatly expanded list of pre-1901 examples. Two major studies assess the growing field of book history and offer recommendations for its development. Two others deal with paper: one provides the earliest detailed description of a European paper mill and its manufacturing processes, and another considers the bibliographical implications of changes in papermaking at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Additional articles treat the bibliographical description of early printed music, offer new information about some eighteenth-century poems set to music, analyze the first publication of Shakespeare's plays in small formats, and investigate the role of collaboration in the writings of James Fenimore Cooper and the implications for modern editors.
