My thanks are due to a number of people and institutions who helped make this work possible. The research committee in the School of English, University of Sussex, provided support and money for the illustrations; The Bodleian Library, Oxford, supplied pictures swiftly and efficiently; Amy Kenny laboured hard to produce the bibliography; the team at Oxford University Press have been reassuringly professional, a great support and a pleasure to work with—the volume was originally commissioned by Andrew McNeillie, and carried through by Jacqueline Baker, who also commented helpfully on the introduction, along with Ariane Petit and Rachel Platt; Jo North has been an excellent copy editor. Moreover, the contributors to the volume have been models of patience, as well as scholarly and critical expertise, reminding me how enjoyable a collaborative project such as this often can be.
