Post 370: Dicken’s biographer wrote this ((Charles Dickens by Una Pope-Hennesy: My wife has presented me with number 10, I think I could have dispensed with the compliment (Charles Dickens); Interesting history of Tauchnitz Publishing. Musical Hallel for Women

  • I remember a conversation with a Catholic friend. Her honest remark came as no surprise. “We,  Jews, (pointing to me)  and Catholics, have many children, but there is one important difference between us. Jews want the next child. Catholics, often don’t”.  A fact not known to me about Dickens: Dicken’s biographer wrote this ((Charles Dickens by Una Pope-Hennesy: )

    “My wife has presented me with number 10, I think I could have dispensed with the compliment .”(Charles Dickens);

    There is an Interesting history of Tauchnitz , Publishing and Charles Dickens.

    He was the first author to obtain a copyright agreement with publishers outside of England.  ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens was one of the first fruits of the agreements that Tauchnitz, a Jewish owned publishing firm,  * (I have since been corrected, the firm was not Jewish) , put in place with British authors to pay them for authorized editions.Further explanation will be offered in a subsequent post.

    In the days before international copyright agreement, most publishers paid nothing to foreign authors, but Tauchnitz decided authorization was worth paying for. I also find this interesting because with ‘A Christmas Carol’ Tauchnitz hit the jackpot almost immediately.   Because of his agreement with Dickens, he received an early copy of the text and was able to get his edition out just about in time for Christmas 1843.   It was almost certainly a best seller, although as a slim paperback, copies have not survived well and early or first printing copies are now rare.

    Curt Otto Tauchnitz’s original firm is responsible for bring  almost every 20th Century British  authors’s works brought to the continent. The circle include James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, Evelyn Waugh, Katherine Mansfield, Agatha Christie, A.A. Milne, John Masefield and Dorothy L. Sayers.

    Lastly, almost two centuries ago, with Tauschnitz’s publishing of Marx and Engel ‘s works, began the spread of revolutionary ideas to mass audiences.

    By the 1930″s  the Nazi party was in power in Germany and the takeover of Tauchnitz, was not politically accepable. There was therefore an arrangement for Tauchnitz to be bought by Oscar Brandstetter, the Leipzig firm that printed Albatross books, with all editorial control handed over to Albatross.  From 1934 on, the Tauchnitz and Albatross series were effectively managed jointly.

    Kurt Enoch, who as a Jew was effectively forced to emigrate, and John Holroyd Reece, who had a Jewish father.  However it was still a period of success for the two series, viewed together, that continued until the declaration of war in 1939. Indeed, every British book, published by Penguin Press has roots in Tauchnitz.
