In Renaissance Cultural Crossroads: Translation, Print and Culture in Britain, 1473-1640, twelve scholars assemble the latest interdisciplinary research in the fields of translation and print in Britain and appraise for the first time the connection between the two.

The section Translation and Early Print discusses how translation shaped the beginnings of British book production. 'Translation, Fiction and Print' examines some Italian and Spanish literary translations and their paratexts. Instruction through Translation demonstrates how translators established an international fund of knowledge. Shaping Mind and Nation through Translation focusses on translations specifically disseminating knowledge of medicine, navigation, military matters, and news.

The volume constitutes a timely contribution to the ever-expanding fields of translation studies and print history but is also relevant to cultural, social and intellectual history.

Review:

''I very much enjoyed reading Renaissance Cultural Crossroads, learned a great deal from it, and look forward to drawing on it in my own research. The essays contained in it are of consistently high quality and it is recommended reading for anyone interested in translation and intercultural traffic during the early modern era.''
Jan Frans van Dijkhuizen, University of Leiden. In: Quaerendo, Vol. 44, No. 4 (2014) p. 302.

"Excellent volume [...] a major contribution to scholarship on the early modern period [...]. I wish I had been able to draw more on these insightful, well-researched essays in my own in-press work [...]. They reveal the fascinating range of concerns that preoccupied translators and printers in Renaissance England: matters intellectual, spiritual, aesthetic, erotic, political, and practical; no less than the whole of life."
Anne Coldiron, Florida State University. In: Publishing History, Vol. 74 (2014), pp. 97-102.
