Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the book that aims to depict the contours of book circulation in early modern Norway in such a manner that both continuities and specific moments of change are evident. Book occurrences in early modern Norway were marked by internationality in two different senses, one signalling rigidity and one signalling multiplicity and diversity. On the one hand, various processes that shaped the broader European print market also found their counterparts in Norway. By throwing light on the Norwegian book market's significant internationality, the author hopes to demonstrate that several of the early modern developments outlined in recent European research are also evident in a Norwegian context. On the other hand, the books owned by the learned strata in Norway were international in a very concrete and hands-on sense that signals heterogeneity. Finally, the chapter presents structure and organization of the book.
