Overview

In the constricted space of London when the book was young, printing, bookselling, and associated activities were organized in intricate topographical patterns. Seven scholarly essays prowl the ground around St. Paul's Cathedral and elsewhere in London of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries to explore communities of the book trade. The contributors are eminent collectors, historians, librarians, and the like; they take on topics including where Wynkyn de Worde did his printing; why booksellers returned as quickly as possible to their old digs after the Great Fire; how Carter Lane printers related to their fellow tradesmen and women; and what made amateur printing develop as a cultural pursuit for the Victorians.
