The book analyses the development of the Dutch publishers and booksellers firm Pieter Blussé in connection with the history of the Blussé family between 1745 and 1830. It offers new insight in the organization of the book trade, the theory and practice of copyright, competition and cooperation among publishers, book prices and print runs, including advertising and marketing. The history of the company is linked with that of the family, using letters and other autobiographical writings. Education, marriage policies, reading practices are among the subjects studied.
