This collection of essays attempts to address some problems of editorial theory and practice which its contributors have either encountered in their own work as practicing editors or as critical users of English editions. It also discusses more general questions, i.e. linguistic problems of editing, the problems of editing bilingual editions or school editions and the difficult economics of scholarly editions today. There are also essays on editing performance poetry, the waning impact of analytical bibliography, the role of teaching and learning editing as well as on the situation of editorial theory and practice among Anglicists in Germany. Several of the essays in this volume began their lives as papers for a workshop on »Editorial Problems« held at the annual meeting of the German 'Anglistentag' in Gießen in September 1997.

The Beihefte zu editio [editio Supplements] appear as a complement to editio, the international journal dealing with questions of editorship, which is published in association with the relevant working groups of Germanists, philosophers and musicologists. While editio has a preference for fundamental and overarching papers covering editorship in as wide a variety of fields as possible, the Supplements deal with specialised questions from the concrete practice of editorship. In each case, the papers focus on one subject, which has normally arisen from a conference.

Die Beihefte zu editio erscheinen als Ergänzung zu editio, der internationalen editionswissenschaftlichen Zeitschrift, die in Verbindung mit den entsprechenden Arbeitsgemeinschaften der Germanisten, Philosophen und Musikwissenschaftler herausgegeben wird. Während editio grundsätzliche und übergreifende editionswissenschaftliche Beiträge zu möglichst unterschiedlichen Schwerpunkten bevorzugt, werden in den Beiheften speziellere Fragestellungen aus der konkreten Editionspraxis abgehandelt. Die Beiträge sind jeweils auf ein Thema, das sich in der Regel aus einer Tagung ergeben hat, fokussiert.
