"Censorial mechanisms came into play in reaction to Vizetelly & Company s translation and publishing projects, to which Henry Vizetelly devoted the better part of the 1880s. His career ended on a bitter note: his firm went bankrupt, and he spent three months in prison in 1889 for having published what was labeled by the courts to be 'obscene' literature in translation. Yet, he is credited with having contributed to successfully undermining the monopoly of the circulating libraries and introducing to the British publishing marketplace inexpensive editions in a single volume through his translation and publishing activities." (Denise Merkle Université de Moncton, Canada, In: Milton, John and Paul Bandia (eds.), Agents of Translation. 2009. vi, 337 pp. (pp. 85-105)).
