Original Biographical Research

Research and write-up a biography of up to 1000 words of a lesser-known author, publisher or distributor of the period, based on an incomplete entry in the MAPP project. The purpose of your biography is to inform your audience about an author, editor, publisher, translator, or distributor involved in the early C20 book trade and to provide further reading materials. Subject to peer review, there is the possibility for this work to be published in MAPP.
