Taken from the proceedings of the Seventeenth Seminar on the British Book Trade held in Aberystwyth in July 1999, this collection of scholarly essays covers the regulation of printed matter and its distribution, the preservation of Welsh language and culture in print, and various aspects of printing and the book trade in provincial England. 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.
