The coming of the book : the impact of printing 1450-1800 by Lucien Febvre( Book )

73 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Books, and the printed word more generally, are aspects of modern life that are all too often taken for granted. Yet the emergence of the book was a process of immense historical importance and heralded the dawning of the epoch of modernity. In this much praised history of that process, Lucien Febvre and Henri-Jean Martin mesh together economic and technological history, sociology and anthropology, as well as the study of modes of consciousness, to root the development of the printed word in the changing social relations and ideological struggles of Western Europe. - Publisher
The history and power of writing by Henri-Jean Martin( Book )

43 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of writing is also a history of technology, and Martin charts the progress of the written word from Sumerian clay tablets to papyrus to paper and the advent of the printing press. His discussion of technology and materials details the development of standardized writing as well, placing such innovations as spacing and capital letters in relation to the increased use and demystification of writing. Paying particular attention to the technological advances that took place in Germany, Martin chronicles the growing importance of printing right down to its explicit role in the spread and success of the Protestant Reformation. He shows how these technological and cultural movements gathered impetus with the Industrial Revolution, when literacy became preeminent

"Martin begins with a sweeping look at the revolutionary role played by the new technology of printing in Renaissance and Reformation Europe. Shifting the focus to France, he then examines the political implications of publishing in the reign of Francis I, and includes such topics as the founding of royal and university libraries, the role of church-state relations, Richelieu's cultural program, and censorship. In revealing case studies of Rouen and Grenoble, Martin pinpoints precisely which books were sold and to which social groups, and he explains why the initially successful printers of Rouen were eventually forced out of business by the Parisian courts." "Martin also casts a discerning eye on early graphic design - from the first illustrated "coffee table" books purchased by the newly rich to the invention of the paragraph to facilitate reading. And he shows how attempts by the French government to suppress and control publication were eventually thwarted by free market forces from Amsterdam and Neufchatel."--Jacket
