Product Description & Reviews

This major, revisionist reference work explains for the first time how the Stationers Company acquired both a charter and a nationwide monopoly of printing. In the most detailed and comprehensive investigation of the London book trade in any period, Peter Blayney systematically documents the story from 1501, when printing first established permanent roots inside the City boundaries, until the Stationers' Company was incorporated by royal charter in 1557. Having exhaustively re-examined original sources and scoured numerous archives unexplored by others in the field, Blayney radically revises accepted beliefs about such matters as the scale of native production versus importation, privileges and patents, and the regulation of printing by the Church, Crown, and City. His persistent focus on individuals - most notably the families, rivals, and successors of Richard Pynson, John Rastell, and Robert Redman - keeps this study firmly grounded in the vivid lives and careers of early Tudor Londoners.

Books Without Borders in Enlightenment Europe: French Cosmopolitanism and German Literary Markets (Material Texts)
By Brand: University of Pennsylvania Press
ean: 9780812243895, isbn: 0812243897,
Though the field of book history has long been divided into discrete national histories, books have seldom been as respectful of national borders as the historians who study them—least of all in the age of Enlightenment when French books reached readers throughout Europe.

Merchants of Innovation (Studies in Language Change)
By De Gruyter Mouton
ean: 9781501511608, isbn: 1501511602,
Traders around the world use particular spoken argots. The written registers of traders, too, in their correspondence and commercial texts show significant differences from the language used in official or legal writing. This volume suggests a clear cross-linguistic tendency that mercantile writing displays a greater degree of language mixing, code-switching and linguistic innovation, and, by setting such precedents, promote language change..
