Hazel Wilkinson

APHA is pleased to announce that the 2016 Mark Samuels Lasner Fellowship is awarded to Dr. Hazel Wilkinson, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, UK for the preparation for a monograph about the history of the Wild Court Press (1718-1785). Wild Court Press was a pioneer of literary and bibliographical innovations such as subscription publication for English works, multi-authored collections of poetry, and use of Dutch Elzevir type and the duodecimo format. At the annual meeting it was noted that seven of the 10 applications for the fellowship came from individuals in the UK.
