For more than 400 years, the Stationers' Company has been a focus for the conduct of the print and book trade. Booksellers, stationers, printers, binders, other producers, and dealers united with a common purpose to protect their trade interests and to exert control in such matters as the number of master printers.

In recent years, as the Company's archives have been opened up to researchers and as new evidence has come to light from other sources, the relationship of the Stationers' Company to the book trade as a whole has been shown to be more complex than had been previously imagined. The Stationers' Company, in all its aspects, is shown to be central to any study of book trade history in Britain.

Book Description St. Paul's Bibliographies, Winchester / Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / The British Library, London, 1997. No binding. Condition: New. First Edition.. 224 pages. Paper-covered boards. New book. BOOKS ON BOOKS. For more than 400 years, the Stationer's Company has been a focus for the conduct of the print and book trade. Booksellers, stationers, printers, binders, other producers, and dealers united with a common purpose to protect their trade interests and to exert control in such matters as apprenticeship and the number of master printers. Profitable activities over a long period such as the English Stock and the regulation of the printing almanacs are examples of this role the Company played. The Company also effectively restricted the production and sale of the printed materials which were registered in its Entry Books at Stationers' Hall. In this, the Company has appeared to be closely aligned with the interest of the State in regulating and controlling a powerful medium for dissent and subversion. In recent years, as the Company's archives have been opened up to researchers and as new evidence has come to light from other sources, the relationship of the Stationers' Company to the book trade as a whole has been shown to be more complex than had been previously imagined. Some scholars now emphasize the limitations of the power exercised by the Company over print publication, while others have shown that it was very closely linked to political and religious networks, especially in the Tudor and Stuart periods. Equally, while fundamentally metropolitan in interest and in character, it is now clear that the Company played an important role in the regions. Welsh printers, for example, sought to protect their publications by entering them in the Company's registers. By contrast, in 18th-century Scotland, a network of booksellers attempted to break free of London regulation as it developed a clandestine trade with Ireland, the great source of pirated editions. These are some of the themes in this volume, in which the Stationers' Company, in all its aspects, is shown to be central to any study of book trade history in Britain. Contributors include Ann Saunders, Peter Blayney, D. F. McKenzie, Jean Tsushima, Ian Gadd, Robin Myers, Warren McDougall, and Philip Henry Jones. (Key Words: Stationer's Company, Ann Saunders, Peter Blayney, D. F. McKenzie, Jean Tsushima, Ian Gadd, Robin Myers, Books On Books, Warren McDougall, Michael Harris, Philip Henry Jones).
