Subtitle: Een populair literair medium in de negentiende eeuw
Author(s): KUITERT, Lisa

Volume: 50 Issue: 2 Date: 2008
In her article, Lisa Kuitert discusses a relatively new publishing strategy in the 19th century, that of publishing novels in monthly or weekly issues. When the last instalment had been published, the episodes were often bound in one volume, which makes it hard to trace the original appearance of the edition. Instalments were profitable for publishers and readers, as well as for the authors. They also seem to have had some effect on the literary texts themselves.
