What impact did the printing press - a new means of communicating the written word - have on early modern English lawyers? This book examines the way in which law printing developed in the period from 1475 up until 1642 and the start of the English Civil War. It offers a new perspective on the purposes and structures of the regulation of the printing press and considers how and why lawyers used the new technology. It examines the way in which lawyers adapted to the use of printed works and the way in which the new technology increased the availability of texts and books for lawyers and the administrative community. It also considers the wider humanist context within which law printing developed. The story is set against the backdrop of revolutionary changes in English society and the move not only to print the law, but also increase its accessibility by making information available in English. The book will be of interest to lawyers and legal historians, print and book historians and the general reader.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book has fascinating parallels with the legal profession's present-day adaptation from working with print to working with digital materials, and with finding new ways of practising the law. -- Katherine Laundy * canadian Law Library Review *
Starting in 1475 and concluding in 1642, the book targets a fitting timeframe, and the book takes the reader on a well-described journey through the various stages of printing press regulation by the government without getting lost in a debate on censorship...The book does an excellent job of showing the way in which technological innovation in the dissemination of information changed how it affected jurists and legal thinking by way of massproduced law reports and treatises. -- Niels Pepels, Max Planck Institute for European Legal History * Journal of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History *
