HISTORIAN PRINTMAKER

Redefining printed historical scholarship while remaining true to the standards and precision of the discipline.


Footnotes “bring tension to the page of history. The real life of the page depends on that tension between footnote and text; and at best, I think, it is apparent, taut, and complicated.” Robert Brentano, “Bishops and Saints,” in Two Churches: England and Italy in the Thirteenth Century (Princeton: Princeton Univ. Press, 1968; Berkeley: Univ. of California Press, 1988), pp. 353 and 375.
