Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates the posthumous publication of Melanchthon. The investigation has led the author to look at the bibliographies of Strobel, Hartfelder, Beuttenmüller and Hammer. Before examining the author's two case studies in detail (the first involving the Opera and the Chronicon Carionis; the second, the Locorum communium collectanea and the various editions of the letters), the chapter begins by recalling a few relevant facts about the economic, commercial and legal aspects of book production in the sixteenth century. All publication began with copy to be printed and published. Once printed, the book entered the book market, usually by being presented in one of the great Book Fairs.
