A History of Cambridge University Press: Volume 1, Printing and the Book Trade in Cambridge, 1534-1698

Cover
Cambridge University Press, 28.09.1992 - 524 Seiten
This is the first volume in a new three-volume history of the University Press, which will eventually bring the story as far as modern times: the next volume (on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries) is in preparation. The history is not only about University printers and their work--especially scholarly, schoolbook, Bible, prayer book and almanac publishing (the University Printers were England's largest suppliers of almanacs in the late seventeenth century)--but also about the rest of the seventeenth century book trade in Cambridge, London, continental Europe and North America.
