  • "In 1450 very few English men or women were personally familiar with a book; by 1850, the great majority of people daily encountered books, magazines or newspapers. This book explores the history of this fundamental transformation, from the arrival of the printing press to the coming of steam. James Raven presents a lively and original account of the English book trade and the printers, booksellers and entrepreneurs who promoted its development."--BOOK JACKET
