Series description

Nikolaus Pevsner, a Jewish teacher of art history at Göttingen University, left Germany for England when the Nazis came to power. He became an authority on English architecture, and art editor of Penguin Books. It was for Penguin that he produced his county-by-county series of guides to “The Buildings of England,” beginning with Cornwall in 1951 and ending with Staffordshire in 1974. They describe not only the great cathedrals, public buildings and stately homes, but also many industrial, commercial and domestic buildings of all kinds right down to the time of publication. Many have been revised since Pevsner’s death, and there are now parallel series for Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and “Architectural Guides” to major cities.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
