He reminds us at the same time that, although a division of the aspects of book culture is convenient for organising and structuring research, "it should not create artificial and arbitrary barriers." 5 Crucial to this article is an understanding of the British Empire as a web of trade, knowledge and migration. 6 Networks of contacts, communication and exchange played an important role in creating an imperial culture.

The store is light and open and modern, yet still warm. But he notes that five of his earlier novels, which had gone out of print, are being reissued as e-books by Open Road Media, a new all-digital publisher. Goldin, who has, however, been known to open up at 7 a.m. for a regular customer or drive two hours to help out an author at an event. There's not much to add to this other than to note that a collector's copy may have started out life as a reader's copy in the sense that it was purchased new to read, and, as applies to most collectible books, didn't become collectible until years later, assuming it survived in collectible condition.
