The Gissing Newsletter and The Gissing Journal


Welcome to readers interested in George Gissing and his work.


As related below, the Gissing Newsletter was founded by Jacob Korg in 1965 when he met in London two scholars he had been corresponding with about Gissing for some time: Shigeru Koike and Pierre Coustillas. This quarterly periodical was first edited by Korg, then by Coustillas from 1969, when C. C. Kohler, the Dorking bookseller who specialised in Gissing among other subjects took over the distribution which he increased considerably until 1990. Kohler was succeeded as bookseller specialising in Gissing books as well as distributor of the Gissing Newsletter by Ros Stinton, who is well-known by all the scholars who attended the Amsterdam and London Conferences devoted to Gissing in 1999 and 2003. In 1991 the Newsletter became the Gissing Journal and it was prepared materially in France by Hélène Coustillas and printed in England.


For years scholars who wished to consult the Newsletter and/or the Journal had to apply to libraries which hold a file or to the successive distributors, but from now on they can read all issues from 1965 to 2000 in this computerized version, essentially thanks to Professor Mitsuharu Matsuoka, assisted by Hélène Coustillas who has read over all the numbers accessible on this site. The years after 2000 will be added gradually.


May you find in the dozens of numbers that we have published material relevant to your interest. Bonne lecture!


Nearly all numbers contain lists of "Notes and News," and, perhaps even more importantly, of "Recent Publications - volumes and articles."
