Six more volumes of the Stevenson Edition have been enthusiastically approved by the Edinburgh University Press Committee. These include the 5 volumes of the Essays (ed. Abrahamson, Dury, Graham and Thomson), the publication of which in the first ever collected edition will be an exceptionally important scholarly landmark. Also contracted is Glenda Norquay’s St Ives which will mark a thorough revaluation of this rarely-published novel.
Robert Irvine’s edition of Prince Otto has been approved by the Press Committee of Edinburgh University Press. It will be among the first volumes to be published in EdRLS, and is the first scholarly edition of this important and neglected novel.
Gillian Hughes, volume editor of Weir of Hermiston and Supervising Editor of the Essays volumes, has been appointed to an Honorary Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh. Having both Gill and Richard Dury as members of the University will help the edition in practical terms and raise its profile in the institution.
