Overview

Early modern pamphlets serve as an important vehicle for examining the print culture of the time, and especially the developing entanglement between technology and capitalism. Combining close readings of pamphlets by Robert Greene, Thomas Nashe, Thomas Deloney and others with a discussion of the history and deployment of print technology, The Marketplace of Print is both a work of historical recovery and a reflection on the ongoing relationship between the marketplace and the public sphere.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Those readers desiring a theoretical and largely economic approach to the production and dissemination of early modern pamphlets will be impressed...with both the content and dexterity of the analysis." Paul J. Voss, South Atlantic Review

"This is a valuable addition to existing studies of prose writing and the book trade..." Studies in English Literature

"This book will appeal most to literary 'new historicists' and 'cultural materialists' but can be read with profit by traditional historians." American Historical Review
