Über diesen Titel


First edition. Part of the Publishing Pathways Series. How did printed material in Britain get from producer to reader? What were the mechanics of supply by which individuals from varied social backgrounds came into contact with print culture? These are hard questions lying at the heart of what is sometimes called the new bibliography. Distribution is a complex line of book trade history because it leads out of the self-contained and familiar area of the printing office and bookshop into the often baffling regions of redistribution and consumption, where the evidence is often fragmentary. London, with its ever-increasing output in this period of books, pamphlets, newspapers, ballads and ephemera, was always the dominant influence on the market. In this volume, however, the contributors are almost all concerned with aspects of the local trade in different parts of the British Isles and, in one essay, the trade between London and America via Scotland. They provide a series of detailed investigations into the distribution networks which supplemented those based in the capital, and in doing so they give a fresh view of the developing relationship between print and society over three centuries. xiii , 241 pages. printed paper over boards.. 8vo..
