The printing revolution in early modern Europe by Elizabeth L Eisenstein( Book )

137 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the importance of the advent of printing for the Western world has long been recognized, it was Elizabeth Eisenstein, in her monumental, two-volume work, The Printing Revolution in Early Modern Europe, who provided the first full-scale treatment of the subject. This illustrated and abridged edition gives a stimulating survey of the communications revolution of the fifteenth century. After summarizing the initial changes introduced by the establishment of printing shops, it goes on to discuss how printing affected three major cultural movements: the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the rise of modern science. This new edition includes a new essay discussing recent controversies provoked by the first edition and reaffirms the thesis that the advent of printing entailed a communications revolution. Fully-illustrated and annotated, the book argues that the cumulative processes set in motion with the advent of printing are likely to persist despite the recent development of new communications technologies

Divine art, infernal machine : the reception of printing in the West from first impressions to the sense of an ending by Elizabeth L Eisenstein( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Divine Art, Infernal Machine, Eisenstein, author of the hugely influential The Printing Press as an Agent of Change, has written a magisterial and highly readable account of five centuries of ambivalent attitudes toward printing and printers. Once again, she makes a compelling case for the ways in which technological developments and cultural shifts are intimately related. Always keeping an eye on the present, she recalls how, in the nineteenth century, the steam press was seen both as a giant engine of progress and as signaling the end of a golden age. Predictions that the newspaper would supersede the book proved to be false, and Eisenstein is equally skeptical of pronouncements of the supersession of print by the digital

Grub Street abroad : aspects of the French cosmopolitan press from the age of Louis XIV to the French Revolution by Elizabeth L Eisenstein( Book )

15 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eighteenth-century French readers who wanted to keep up with political and literary trends had to rely on books and journals imported from abroad. French writers, such as Voltaire and Rousseau, also depended on foreign firms to get their works in print." "Grub Street Abroad demonstrates the importance of extraterritorial publishing for the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. By placing the periphery at the centre of the stage, it highlights neglected cosmopolitan aspects of the French Enlightenment and points to forces which undercut Bourbon claims of cultural hegemony. Firms serving French markets from abroad are viewed as part of a far-flung communications network which, although sensitive to diplomatic pressures from diverse courts, still comprised a relatively autonomous, independent field of operations. Topics covered include the publishing and editing of francophone journals and clandestine manuscripts; the emergence of the book review and the editorial board; the reliance of the philosophes upon foreign firms; the cosmopolitan outlook of so-called 'Grub Street hacks'." "Overall, a revised picture of the nature and importance of publishing in the period emerges - a presentation that will provoke and interest a wide range of historical, literary, and bibliographical specialists."--BOOK JACKET
