Daniel Traister earned degrees in English literature from Colby College and New York University, and a degree in Library Service from Columbia University. He has published essays on the poetry of Sir Philip Sidney, Renaissance publishing practices, the history of books and printing, and -- most frequently -- rare book librarianship and library collection development. He also publishes occasionally on topics in twentieth-century American literature. He co-edited Bibliography Newsletter and was both book review editor and a reviewer-columnist for American Book Collector. Current projects include a revision, for a new venue, of an exhibition catalogue dealing with Emma Hamilton, Sir William Hamilton, and Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson; and a number of related essays that concern geographically or otherwise marginalized, non-canonical, disregarded, and unread writers.
