The medium of print has always been identified as a crucial element in the exercise of power. Since the invention of printing a combination of interests - political, religious and cultural - have borne down on the Press in an attempt to shape and contain its output. Each stage of the production and distribution of printed material can be seen as a battlefield of competing ideologies, whether organized through such institutions as the Stationers' Company, Parliament, and the lending library, or represented by broad divisions within society at large. In this collection of essays leading scholars investigate the interaction between authors, publishers, booksellers, readers and regulatory bodies in England and France across three centuries, and show the key role that the book trade - resisting or adapting to external pressure - has played in defining what is permissible to publish. - See more at: http://www.oakknoll.com/pages/books/37463/robin-myers-michael-harris/censorship-and-the-control-of-print-in-england-and-france-1600-1910#sthash.LH8UYKGk.dpuf -- Publisher's website

The Stationers' Company and the book trade, 1550-1990 by Robin Myers( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
For more than 400 years, the Stationers' Company has been a focus for the conduct of the print and book trade. Booksellers, stationers, printers, binders, other producers, and dealers united with a common purpose to protect their trade interests and to exert control in such matters as the number of master printers. In recent years, as the Company's archives have been opened up to researchers and as new evidence has come to light from other sources, the relationship of the Stationers' Company to the book trade as a whole has been shown to be more complex than had been previously imagined. The Stationers' Company, in all its aspects, is shown to be central to any study of book trade history in Britain

"In this volume, leading specialists in book history consider examples from the sixteenth to the twentieth century to chart some of the paths followed by books through the European network of print. This may focus on the large collections accumulated by Renaissance scholars, but may equally involve tracking multiple copies of the same work through the marks of ownership left by unknown readers. Books on the Move Represents an important contribution to an understanding of the shifting interactions over time between libraries, collectors and the book trade."--Jacket
