Abstract:

"As Professor Sher writes in this third volume in the series Print Networks, 'stories about books are also stories about authors, readers, and members of the book trade, seen as flesh-and-blood individuals with their own interests, aspirations, motives, strengths, and weaknesses'. The Human Face of the Book Trade explores this topic, showing how human idiosyncrasies intervene at every stage of the intellectual journey from author to reader, and how the strengths and frailties of the creators of print culture may produce smaller or larger changes of direction."--Jacket.
