About this title
Text in Greek. Some portions of text in English. Printed letterpress in an edition limited to 1000 copies. In May of 2001, an International Congress on the History of Greek Printing was held in Delphi, Greece where leading scholars presented over 40 papers pertaining to dissemination of the Greek language via manuscripts, books and documents. The collection of essays compiled in this book is the publication of these learned papers. A sample of essays within the text includes the following: "The First Use of Greek Type in Spain, France, the Low Countries and England" by Dennis E. Rhodes; "Andreas Kounadis and the Nicolini da Sabbio" by Evro Layton; "Libri Greci Impressi da Melchiorre Sessa Solo e in Societa con Pietro di Ravini 1521-1555 " by Silvia Curi Nicolardi; "Greek Books in Venice" by Marino Zorzi; "Controversial Problems Regarding the Printing Press of Moschopolis" by Max Demeter Peyfuss; "Echi e Riflessi dell'Illuminismo Veneto nella Letteratura Scientifica del Tardo Settecento Eptanesio" by Maria Laura Soppelsa; and "British Collections of Seventeenth-Century Greek Liturgical Books" by Michael Jeffreys. This illustrated and handsomely bound volume is one of the best scholarly works on the diaspora of the Greek written word. The essays appear in a broad variety of languages, and many are printed in Greek. There is a useful appendix that contains abstracts in English for all 30 of the essays in Greek. It should be on the book shelf of all scholars of Greek culture and anyone interested in early books in the West. Co-published with Kotinos Publications, Athens Greece. 710 pages. Half faux leather/printed paper-covered boards,. 6.5" x 9.5".
