Abstract:

"The first lecture, on The Bentley Revival, gives new information about the Press's first experiment in publishing, and the general increase of activity under Bentley's direction in the early eighteenth century. Recently discoverd minutes and accounts of the period are illustrated, and their contents analysed; and Mr Roberts gives an entertaining account of the progress of the Suida Lexicon throught the press. After the Royal Commission shows the beginnings in the nineteenth-century Cambridge of a publishing firm as it is understood to-day; the development of a London publishing-house, the beginnings of advertising, the growth of a 'back list'. The Twentieth Century begins with the publication of the 11th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica - a controversial venture in commerical publishing. It then describes and illustrates the great typographical revival associated first with Mr Bruce Rogers and later with Mr Stanley Morison and Mr Walter Lewis."--Jacket.
