In 1984 the Press celebrated 400 years of continuous printing and publishing. This history, now published as a paperback, provides a readable introduction to that unique period, with a foreword by Gordon Johnson which comments on the continuing achievement of the Press. The story is of the development of the printing and publishing arm of the University of Cambridge, from the medieval system of resident stationers to the modern international printing and publishing house. The narrative is set within the development of the University; in the history of the book trade as a whole; and in the intellectual and political history of England.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a most handsome, well-written and well-researched account ... a distinguished and on the whole soberer one than the curiously disjointed history of its ancient rival.' Church Times
'Cambridge University Press has a history of which it is justly proud, and in Mr Black has found a historian who has done full justice to this remarkable story.' The Library
'Black has written a landmark study of a unique British institution. The scholarly publishing community is richer for this study of its origins.' Educational Studies
'This an altogether admirable book, hugely enjoyable and informative ... Black's prose is lucid and frequently witty, while the work is far less self-serving than most volumes of a similar kind.' Nature
