London as a center for business and culture provided the essential focus for the development of the English book trade. In physically constricted urban spaces, printing, bookselling and all the associated activities were organized in intricate topographical patterns. How this worked on the ground provides the central theme of the volume, containing essays by specialists in a variety of fields. Several chapters explore the communities of printers and booksellers around St. Paul's Cathedral and its neighborhood in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Other topics range across the areas of London associated with the print trade, and with French emigres in the book trade, to the output of private presses in the London suburbs in the nineteenth century.

Reading, and the manifold signs of reading, have become one of the most dynamic areas of research in book history. The reader as consumer and owner, as well as participant in the construction of new meanings, is the subject of these original essays. Specialists in literature, art history and book history investigate the annotations, marginal marks, extra-illustration and other forms of evidence left by readers. Through an examination of the book as a physical object, the contributors provide a range of intriguing insights into the ways in which this internalised and ephemeral activity can be understood in the context of book-trade history.

"From the Frankfurt book fairs in the sixteenth century to the Farringdon Road barrows in the twentieth, fairs and markets have played a crucial role in the circulation of books. Travelling pedlars, hawkers and chapmen have also acted as intermediaries in distributing printed material beyond the reach of conventional bookshops, while itinerant printers caused problems of control for the authorities." "In this volume, leading book historians investigate the presence of the book trade in the streets and public spaces of Britain and continental Europe. The essays range across geographical as well as chronological frontiers to follow the movement of books, ideas and people."--BOOK JACKET.

For more than 400 years, the Stationers' Company has been a focus for the conduct of the print and book trade. Booksellers, stationers, printers, binders, other producers, and dealers united with a common purpose to protect their trade interests and to exert control in such matters as the number of master printers. In recent years, as the Company's archives have been opened up to researchers and as new evidence has come to light from other sources, the relationship of the Stationers' Company to the book trade as a whole has been shown to be more complex than had been previously imagined. The Stationers' Company, in all its aspects, is shown to be central to any study of book trade history in Britain.

"Written to mark Oak Knoll Press's thirtieth anniversary, Books about Books is a comprehensive history and bibliography of the press, from its beginning in 1978 through the fall of 2008. Bob Fleck, founder, owner, and president of the Press, tells the story of his adventures in publishing. Bob decided to leave the field of chemical engineering in 1976 to start Oak Knoll Books, an antiquarian bookseller specializing in books about books. Two years later, he started publishing in the same field, beginning with a reprint of Bigmore and Wyman's A Bibliography of Printing. Oak Knoll Press has operated out of several buildings and under several publishing directors, but in the thirty years of its existence, it has developed a reputation for excellence in the field of books about books. The Press has published 320 books to date and is still going strong." "The book begins with a fifty-page history of the press, which is well illustrated with more than fifty images. The history is followed by the bibliography, which lists 320 books in order of publication. Each entry includes the author, title, edition, and a brief physical description, as well as a paragraph describing the contents of the book. Any subsequent reprints are also listed. The bibliography includes about twenty full-page images of Oak Knoll Press publications. Books about Books is sure to be a useful tool for all of those wishing to expand their Oak Knoll Press collection or understand individual titles in the context of the whole."--BOOK JACKET.
