This Companion aims to provide a comprehensive guide to the issues relevant to the early printed book, covering the significant cultural, social and technological developments from 1476 (the introduction of printing to England) to 1558 (the death of Mary Tudor). Divided into thematic sections (the printed book trade; the printed book as artefact; patrons, purchasers and products; and the cultural capital of print), it considers the social, historical and cultural context of the rise and development of print in the Early Modern period. Essays deal with the transmission from manuscript to print; the printers; the significant Latin trade; paper, types, bindings, and woodcuts and other decorative features; the main sponsors and consumers of the printed book: merchants, the lay clientele, secular and religious clergy, and the Universities, secular colleges and chantries; humanism; women translators; the role of censorship; the continuity of Catholic publishing. The book is furnished with a chronology and detailed indices."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
