The evolution of the book by Frederick G Kilgour ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Distinguished scholar and library systems innovator Frederick Kilgour tells a five-thousand-year story in this exciting work, a tale beginning with the invention of writing and concluding with the emerging electronic book. Calling on a lifetime of interest in the growth of information technology, Kilgour brings a fresh approach to the history of the book, emphasizing in rich, authoritative detail the successive technological advances that allowed the book to keep pace with ever-increasing needs for information. Borrowing a concept from evolutionary theory - the notion of punctuated equilibria - to structure his account, Kilgour investigates the book's three discrete historical forms - the clay tablet, papyrus roll, and codex - before turning to a fourth, still evolving form, the cyber book, a version promising swift electronic delivery of information in text, sound, and motion to anyone at any time." "The Evolution of the Book will captivate book lovers as well as those interested in bibliographic history, the history of writing, and the history of technology."--Jacket
