First published in 1954, this book examines the process by which the Codex--the traditional form of the western book--replaced the scroll as the primary vehicle for literature. Drawing upon evidence accumulated in the last thirty years, this edition gives fresh insight into the remarkable role the early Christian church played in the transformation of the printed word.
