Oxford University Press is pleased to announce the complete reissue of all the existing volumes of the Oxford History of English Literature. The set, originally published in thirteen volumes, is soon to be expanded to fifteen volumes with the forthcoming 1990 and 1991 publications of volumes VI, Shakespeare, and Volume XVI, Victorian Novel. Readers can now collect any of the thirteen volumes they missed upon the first publication, while newcomers can obtain the fifteen-volume set all at once. Handsomely presented in matching jackets, some of the books have been retitled for the purpose of the reissue, while the set as a whole has been renumbered for ease of use.
