Censorship & the control of print : in England and France 1600-1910( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The medium of print has always been identified as a crucial element in the exercise of power. Since the invention of printing a combination of interests - political, religious and cultural - have borne down on the Press in an attempt to shape and contain its output. Each stage of the production and distribution of printed material can be seen as a battlefield of competing ideologies, whether organized through such institutions as the Stationers' Company, Parliament, and the lending library, or represented by broad divisions within society at large. In this collection of essays leading scholars investigate the interaction between authors, publishers, booksellers, readers and regulatory bodies in England and France across three centuries, and show the key role that the book trade - resisting or adapting to external pressure - has played in defining what is permissible to publish. - See more at: http://www.oakknoll.com/pages/books/37463/robin-myers-michael-harris/censorship-and-the-control-of-print-in-england-and-france-1600-1910#sthash.LH8UYKGk.dpuf -- Publisher's website

The Stationers' Company and the book trade, 1550-1990 by Robin Myers( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 400 years, the Stationers' Company has been a focus for the conduct of the print and book trade. Booksellers, stationers, printers, binders, other producers, and dealers united with a common purpose to protect their trade interests and to exert control in such matters as the number of master printers. In recent years, as the Company's archives have been opened up to researchers and as new evidence has come to light from other sources, the relationship of the Stationers' Company to the book trade as a whole has been shown to be more complex than had been previously imagined. The Stationers' Company, in all its aspects, is shown to be central to any study of book trade history in Britain
Books on the move : tracking copies through collections and the book trade( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Movements of books, both as individual volumes and as collections, have sometimes covered long distances across many centuries. Subject to the vagaries of war, shipwreck and personal ruin, as well as the intervention of the book trade and of collectors, the travels of books often have an intricately detailed and compelling story to tell. One of the most active areas of current research in book history is concerned with interpreting the clues from individual copies and piecing together the documentary evidence to provide this narrative."
