EZRA POUND’S POETRY AND PROSE:
CONTRIBUTIONS TO PERIODICALS.
EDS. LEA BAECHLER, WALTON LITZ AND JAMES LONGENBACH.
NEW YORK: GARLAND, 1991.
The monumental facsimile work of reference Ezra Pound's Poetry and Prose: Contributions to Periodicals (P&P), 11 vols., edited by Lea Baechler, A. Walton Litz and James Longenbach is the most reliable and comprehensive work of reference published to date, documenting the running story of Pound's periodical publications in time. As a printed resource, it is invaluable to researchers. However, due to a very small print run and high prices, these volumes have become very hard to access and consult. In the UK for example, there are only five sets available. If a volume is requested through interlibrary loan, it cannot be borrowed and has to be consulted on site in a special collections reading room.
Digitizing these volumes would greatly improve the possibilities of access and reference for scholars all over the world.
Preliminary negotiations with New Directions as to permission to scan this reference work for closed access (for members of the society) were started in January 2014. A more elaborate application for copyright was made in May 2015. Permision for digitizing the volumes was given on June 22, 2015.
The project was announced at the Brunnenburg Conference on 11 July.
Work on Volume I began in August 2015.
