A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.
Studies in the American Renaissance published biographical, historical, and bibliographical literary scholarship on the period of the American Renaissance (roughly 1830-1860). Because there were no page limits on articles, Studies was able to publish such extended works as editions of Bronson Alcott's letters and journals, Louisa May Alcott's letters, Ralph Waldo Emerson's early poetry, Nathaniel Hawthorne's consular letters, Edgar Allan Poe's short stories and essays, and Henry David Thoreau's A Life without Principle lectures; the apparatus for an edition of Poe's Eureka; calendars of the letters of Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Fuller, Sophia Peabody Hawthorne, Poe, and Thoreau; a calendar of Thoreau's lectures; and extended bibliographical works on Emerson, Fuller, Hawthorne, Poe, and Thoreau.
In twenty volumes, Studies published 265 articles by 174 contributors, a total of approximately 8,500 pages containing nearly four million words.
Publication of this title ceased in 1996.
