                        SHARP BOOK HISTORY PRIZE

        The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing
announces the creation of the annual SHARP Book History Prize.  This prize
of $1000 will be awarded each year to the best book-length monograph on
the history of the book, broadly defined as the history of the creation,
dissemination, and uses of script or print.

        The first competition will be for books published in 1996.
Reference works and collections of essays by more than one author are not
eligible.  All entries must be in English.  Translations into English
published in 1996 are eligible.

        Submit three copies of each entry, one to each member of the prize
committee: Elisabeth S. Leedham-Green (chair), University Library, West
Road, Cambridge CB3 9DR, Britain; Robert L. Patten, English Department,
Rice University, PO Box 1892, Houston, TX 77251-1892, USA; and Beth Luey,
History Department, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287-2501, USA.
Book parcels should be marked "Attn: SHARP Book Prize."  The submission
deadline is 1 March 1997.  The first prize will be announced at the July
1997 SHARP conference at Cambridge University.
