This chapter examines changes in both the profession of authorship and the publishing trade in Britain the nineteenth century. It charts the tension between conflicting concepts of authorship and developments in intellectual property and literary journalism under three headings: ‘Novelists and literary property’, concerning copyright in theory and practice; ‘Novelists as journalists’, on the interface between periodical publication and literary production; and, finally, ‘The novel of the author’, regarding the incorporation of themes and scenes of authorship and publishing into works of fiction themselves.

Keywords:   publishing trade, literary journalism, intellectual property, novelists, literary property, copyright, periodical publication, literary production
