octavo, (xiv), 265 pp. This ninth volume of the Print Network series contains twelve exciting chapters from scholars working on the connections between the parties involved in the production of print artifacts; from author to printer, publisher, bookseller and reader. Chronologically, the offerings range from the seventeenth to the twentieth century as they track the developing trade in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Publishers and readers who spent part of their lives in North America are also featured in several of the chapters. The main theme emerging from this volume is the significance of cheap print, including newspapers and journals. The social, cultural, political and economic significance of these artifacts is highlighted by an in-depth examination of the lives of those men and women who participated in the book trade.
