About this book

This monograph makes clear how the format of the literary folio played a fundamental role in book history by encapsulating the unstable negotiation between commerce, cultural prestige, and the fundamental nature of the printed book.

Reviews

“Francis Connor’s detailed and well-researched monograph therefore charts the publication of literary folios from the private, elite coteries to the public, commercial sphere; through this progression, ideas of the book evolved and were negotiated in early modern England—indeed, the chapter divisions reflect this. … Connor’s monograph adds to the significant corpus of book-history research … .” (Jocelyn Hargrave, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 68 (4), 2015)
