Printing, Writers and Readers in Renaissance Italy
Cambridge University Press, 5 de ago. de 1999 - 220 páginas
This is the first full-length study of a topic of central importance to the development of Italian and European culture. The spread of printing to Renaissance Italy had a dramatic impact on all users of books. As works came to be diffused more widely and cheaply, and reading became a more popular activity, so authors adapted their writing and methods of publishing to the demands and opportunities of the new medium. Brian Richardson focuses on the interaction between the book industry and written culture at this crucial period.
