THE MIGHTY ENGINE: THE PRINTING PRESS AND ITS IMPACT.
Isaac, Peter and Barry McKay (editors).
This fourth volume in the Print Networks series salutes the impact of the printing press. Taken from the proceedings of the Seventeenth Seminar on the British Book Trade held in Aberystwyth in July 1999, this collection of scholarly essays reminds us how authorities have tried for centuries to control the printed matter coming off the mighty engine, as well as the distribution of the material. Eighteen essays written from such authorities as: John Turner, Barry McKay, John Hinks, John R. Turner, David J. Shaw, Sarah Gray, David Stoker, Stacey Gee, Iain Beavan, Audrey Cooper, Diana Dixon, Margaret Cooper, Brenda Scragg, Philip Henry Jones, Richard Suggett, Chris Baggs and Rheinallt Llwyd. Illustrated. Co-Published with St. Pauls Bibliographies.
