About this title


This volume of essays on the history of the book and the book trade celebrates the distinguished contribution made by Robin Myers, for many years Honorary Archivist of the Stationers' Company and recently elected President of the Bibliographical Society (London).
Drawing on new research and much previously unpublished material, these studies focus on two themes which Robin Myers has made her own: the historical development of the British book trade and the history of book ownership, collecting and libraries.
