After re-examining fundamental aspects of the printing revolution of the early modern period, David McKitterick argues that many changes associated with printing were only gradually absorbed over almost 400 years, a much longer period than usually suggested. From the 1450s onwards, the printed word and image became familiar in most of Europe. Manuscript and print formats began to be considered as complements to each other, rather than alternatives for authors, makers of books, and readers. With examples from across Europe, this work will be of great value to all readers studying this period, whether in the humanities or the sciences.of a single copy to one of a#39;copya#39; as multiples, adapts the English language but reflects bibliographical variety more ... about early printed books: that they can remain physically uncompleted after they have left the printera#39;s or publishera#39;s control.
