The reception of antiquity in Bohemian book culture from the beginning of printing until 1547 by Kamil Boldan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the historical development and important personalities of the time of transition from manuscript book culture to book printing in the years 1450-1550. The first part of the volume contains a thorough description of historical, social and technical background influencing the development of book printing in Bohemia and Moravia and the impact of book printing production on the contemporary Czech society. The authors described the specific historical conditions in the Kingdom of Bohemia after the pre-reformation Hussite movement. The newly emerged Utraquist confession spread in important parts of Bohemia which led to decrease of social and economic contacts between the Kingdom of Bohemia and Catholic states in Europe. Apart from that the decreased activity of Prague University had negative impact on literacy in Bohemia. These two main reasons were detrimental to the development of book printing in Bohemia. The low quality of first prints was not attractive for educated readers who rather chose better equipped foreign books, mainly in Latin. Book printing in Bohemia soon became a matter of closed Czech speaking public. One of the important consequences of this process was weak reception of humanism and classical antiquity in Czech culture, although the former was partly embraced in Bohemia in previous centuries anyway. The second part of the book presents the first printers and editors of printed books before 1550 with a summary of their publishing activities

Český knihtisk mezi pozdní gotikou a renesancí = Printing in the Bohemian lands between the Late Gothic and the Early Renaissance Periods by Petr Voit( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in Czech and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this work is to show how and in what time the Czech late Gothic letterpress grew into the Early Renaissance craft and how the literary and publishing scene was changed during this process, and with it the reader community. The printers of the North-Danish Dynasty are well-suited to this assignment because they devoted themselves to the production and distribution of the printed book in 1488-1557, and besides the family congregation of Gerosh Kohen, a significant hedgehog of Prague Hebrew printing, they did not have any dynastic competition until the times of the Melantrich-Adam family
