Jules Marouzeau and L’Année philologique: The Genesis of a Reform in Classical Bibliography
In the early twentieth century, bibliography was subject to a large-scale reform effort, spearheaded by institutions such as the League of Nations and the International Institute on Intellectual Cooperation, which attempted to internationalize scientific practices. The French Latinist Jules Marouzeau conceived his newly created bibliography L’Année philologique as a part of that movement. The history of the publication’s origins, which should be read in light of Marouzeau’s professional ambitions, provides a new perspective on the scientific rivalry around bibliography, a tool for science and a driver of internationalization.
