A Fine, bright copy without dust jacket with a mylar cover. The Stations' Company is a trade guild given a royal charter in 1557 to regulate the various professions associated with the publishing industry, including printers, bookbinders, booksellers, and publishers in England. The Stations' Register allowed publishers to document their right to produce a particular printed work, and constituted an early form of copyright law. The Company's charter gave it the right to seize illicit editions and bar the publication of unlicensed books. This is the history of the company. Bookseller Inventory # 23013
