About this book

This book explores the significance of the physicality of manuscripts and printed early modern texts. Focusing on the material aspects and social practices of texts as a new way of reading meaning, it reassesses the developing relationships between cultures of manuscript and print from the late sixteenth to early eighteenth century.

Reviews

"This volume of essays is essential reading for anyone interested in the materiality of texts in their inception, production, transmission, and reception, offering timely interventions into a developing conversation about early modern material culture. A key strength of the book is its combined theoretical and practical thrust: case studies are contextualized and theorized, genuine questions and avenues for future study identified. The essays in this volume leave readers wanting more a good result and attest to the range and vitality of current scholarship focused on illuminating early modern texts and social practices among both established and emerging scholars." Jeanne Shami, SHARP News
