The New Yale Book of Quotations has recently been published by Yale University Press. This book was compiled using innovative research techniques aimed at collecting famous quotations and documenting their origins more accurately and thoroughly than the information found in traditional quotation compilations. As a result, the volume is very much a "historian's quotation dictionary." For the next edition of the NYBQ, the editor welcomes contributions of additional quotations or improved information about quotations already included. Information about quotations authored by women are particularly important. Contributors will be acknowledged in the front matter of the next edition.
