"This revised and updated edition takes account of the radical changes that have taken place since it was originally conceived. With almost 600 A-Z entries, written by a global team of over 180 contributors, the subject matter ranges from mobile library services provided by camel and donkey transport to search engines, portals and the World Wide Web. The entries fall into four categories." "All the longer entries are fully supported by references and suggestions for further reading.

A history of British publishing by John Feather( Book )

"This revised, restructured and thoroughly updated edition of a classic text covers six centuries of publishing in Britain, from before the invention of the printing press to the electronic era." "In this book, John Feather considers not only the publishing industry itself, but also areas affecting and affected by it, from education, politics, technology and law, to religion, custom and class. He traces the history of the publishing of books in Britain, looking at how they were financed, produced and distributed. Moving into the twentieth century he considers the fate of publishers such as Penguin, Macmillan, Faber & Faber and Collins and how they have fared against the onslaught of the great global corporations which dominate the media today." "In this radically reworked second edition, John Feather places Britain, and her book industries, firmly in the international marketplace. With transatlantic competition and co-operation now standard, and with books marketed across the world via internet stores, Feather concludes by asking, how British is British publishing?"--Jacket

The provincial book trade in eighteenth-century England by John Feather( Book )

22 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was not until the eighteenth century that books became widely available throughout the whole of England. Publishing remained largely London-based, but the provincial market grew steadily in importance. In this study, drawing on a wide range of primary sources, John Feather traces the economic, social and cultural forces which made possible this fundamental change, and assesses the impact of the metropolitan printed word on provincial society. He discusses the important issues of copyright and piracy; the various financial arrangements between booksellers and publishers; and above all the elaborate distribution and agency systems that enabled London publishers to retain their effective stranglehold by penetrating the provincial market at every level
