Abstract:

Collected here as a homage to Robin Myers, respected book trade historian and editor of the Publishing Pathways Series devoted to studies in book trade and publishing history, these essays uncover the connections between the mechanics of the book trade and their human ends in the learning and transmission of knowledge. They show that the processes and materials involved in the production of books pave the way for larger economic and social issues ranging from business connections, patents, copyrights and their transfer, London's relations with Ireland and America, the Stationers' Company and what transpires when books pass into the hands of customers. This work also includes a memoir of Myers along with a bibliography of her published works. - See more at: http://www.oakknoll.com/pages/books/47253/arnold-hunt-giles-mandelbrote-alison-shell/book-trade-its-customers-1450-1900-historical-essays-for-robin-myers#sthash.oAW8oRu8.dpuf -- Publisher's website.
