Routledge Studies in Book Trade History

Series Editors:

A great deal of attention has been given in recent years to the book as a material, historical object and its possible technological obsolescence in the era of digitization. Such reflections have tended to concentrate on the production and cultural circulation of books, their significance and their power to shape knowledge and subjectivities and it is the resilience of the book as one of the most ingenious technogical inventions in history that is the preoccupation of this series. Bringing together international scholars via a series of long running conferences as well as newly minted research, Routledge Studies in Book Trade History is a fulcrum for brand new findings in the field.
