The wide range of topics covered in this volume relate to manuscripts as well as the printed book. Essays cover papermaking in America, hand bookbinding, authorship and maritime publishing in 18th-century Britain. But it is the process of interdependent exchange between author, publisher and reader that is the central theme to the essays which are based on lectures given at the William Andrews Clark Library.
