The Era of “Originals”: 1870-1939 book
Assigning the term “original” to any published work is something of a misnomer as even the first printing of a monograph, serial or any other material type generally involves the creation of duplicates for sale or distribution. But for lack of anything clearer, the word is used here to indicate those imprints of a work that were produced by a publisher, as opposed to “copies” created after publication, whether manually, by mimeograph, photocopy or any other means.
