Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author confines his remarks to the world of print as has become increasingly apparent in recent years, manuscript or scribal publication is still an important feature of various aspects of intellectual life. The narrower field of production in Britain, and the limitation on entries, has been of very great use to scholars of English. The source on which the author concentrates is the culmination of the work of relentless and dedicated compilers; it is connected with the Frankfurt and Leipzig fairs. Both of these have medieval origins, and developed quickly to accommodate printed books when these started to be marketed internationally in early the sixteenth century. Between 1608 and 1638, the author has found less than ten entries for books in English in the fair catalogues.

Keywords: English books; Leipzig fairs; medieval origins
