9780198158318: The Crombergers of Seville: The History of a Printing and Merchant Dynasty

During the first half of the sixteenth century, three generations of the Cromberger family dominated printing in Seville, a city which at the time was Castile's population center and seat of book production. This volume, based on extensive research, is the first study of a major sixteenth-century Spanish printing house. Griffin's account of the Cromberger press--from which came many influential religious, literary, and historical works--and the family's wider commercial interests at home and abroad provides important insights into contemporary Spanish culture and reading habits, and the Crombergers' wider significance in Renaissance culture and the history of printing. The book also includes, in a microfiche appendix, 1,600 pages of detailed bibliographical description.
