Too much to know : managing scholarly information before the modern age by Ann Blair ( Book )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The flood of information brought to us by advancing technology is often accompanied by a distressing sense of 'information overload', yet this experience is not unique to modern times. In fact, says Ann Blair in this intriguing book, the invention of the printing press and the ensuing abundance of books provoked sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European scholars to register complaints very similar to our own. The author examines methods of information management in ancient and medieval Europe as well as the Islamic world and China, then focuses particular attention on the organization, composition, and reception of Latin reference books in print in early modern Europe. She explores in detail the sophisticated and sometimes idiosyncratic techniques that scholars and readers developed in an era of new technology and exploding information

The theater of nature : Jean Bodin and Renaissance science by Ann Blair ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Theater of Nature is histoire totale of the last work of the political philosopher Jean Bodin, his Universae naturae theatrum (1596). Through Bodin's work Ann Blair explores the fascinating and previously little known world of late Renaissance natural philosophy. A study of the text, of its context (through comparisons with different genres of natural philosophy and works entitled "Theater"), and of its reception in the seventeenth century highlights above all the religious motivations, encyclopedic ambitions, and bookish methods characteristic of much late Renaissance science

The Scriblerians uncensored: Libel, encryption, and the making of copyright in eighteenth-century Britain and Ireland by Suzanne Joy Podhurst ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Scriblerians, a group of satirists whose principal members were Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, John Arbuthnot, John Gay, and Thomas Parnell, saw in a broad range of eighteenth-century censorship apparatuses opportunities to elicit recognition and unprecedented compensation for their texts. Arguing that censorship was a necessary condition of copyright, this dissertation examines how the Scriblerians transformed various textual restrictions into modes of exercising authorial ownership. They did this in part by treating censorship as they did modern scholarship: as a hindrance to free and clear communication, and thus to learning itself. By making strategic uses of defamation, encryption, and Irish printing, they used censorship mechanisms instrumentally to argue for proper learning, and ultimately to establish terms of intellectual proprietorship
