Discusses the literary book trade in Britain, beginning with the introduction of the handpress and ending within a century of the revolution that widespread mechanization would bring to book production.

Mass communications research resources : an annotated guide by Christopher H Sterling( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This reference book is designed as a road map for researchers who need to find specific information about American mass communication as expeditiously as possible. Taking a topical approach, it integrates publications and organizations into subject-focused chapters for easy user reference. The editors define mass communication to include print journalism and electronic media and the processes by which they communicate messages to their audiences. Included are newspaper, magazine, radio, television, cable, and newer electronic media industries. Within that definition, this volume offers an indexed inventory of more than 1,400 resources on most aspects of American mass communication history, technology, economics, content, audience research, policy, and regulation. The material featured represents the carefully considered judgment of three experts -- two of them librarians -- plus four contributors from different industry venues. The primary focus is on the domestic American print and electronic media industries. Although there is no claim to a complete census of all materials on print journalism and electronic media -- what is available is now too vast for any single guide -- the most important and useful items are here. The emphasis is on material published since 1980, though useful older resources are included as well. Each chapter is designed to stand alone, providing the most important and useful resources of a primary nature -- organizations and documents as well as secondary books and reports. In addition, online resources and internet citations are included where possible
Telecommunications research resources : an annotated guide by James K Bracken( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the telecommunication and information field expands and becomes more varied, so do publications about these technologies and industries. This book is a first attempt to provide a general guide to that wealth of English-language publications -- both books and periodicals -- on all aspects of telecommunication. It is a comprehensive, evaluative sourcebook for telecommunications research in the United States that brings together a topically-arranged, cross-referenced, and indexed volume in one place. The information provided is only available by consulting a succession of different directories, guides, bibliographies, yearbooks, and other resources. On the one hand, it is a directory that describes in detail the major entities that comprise the American telecommunication research infrastructure including federal and state government offices and agencies, and private, public, and corporate research institutions. It is a bibliography that identifies and assesses the most important and useful reference and critical resources about U.S. telecommunication history, technology, industry and economics, social applications and impacts, plus policy, law and regulations, and role in the global telecommunication marketplace. No existing guide covers all of these aspects in the depth and detail of this volume

Come ye blessed, go ye cursed : the world of John Foxe's Acts and monuments, also known as The book of martyrs by James K Bracken( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This exhibition attempts to tell the story of a single work through its nine early editions published over a span of 130 years. Consisting exclusively of copies of early editions 'Acts and monuments', the exhibition's thematic organization, focusing both on people who appear in the book as well as on those who helped to physically make it, directly owes to the outstanding collection of editions of 'Acts and Monuments' residing in the Ohio State University Libraries' Rare Books and Manuscripts Department"--Container
