This essay explores the movements in and of Irish-authored publications, including those of Regina Maria Roche, produced by the leading publisher of early-nineteenth century Irish gothic, Londonís Minerva Press. It investigates how processes of production and circulation both fixed and expanded the geographical as well as ideological reaches of Irish gothic literary production, c. 1800-1830. It also addresses the manner in which the geographic spread in and of these works contributed to an evolving sense of Irish cultural nationalism often dependent on the mobility of Irishmen and women, but more frequently associated with the national tale and allied genres than with the literary gothic.
