by Myers, Robin (editor); Michael Harris (editor); Giles Mandelbrote
Delaware: Oak Knoll Press & The British Library, 2007. First edition. Hardcover. New/new. 164pp. Octavo [23.5cm]; black cloth covered boards with gold lettering on spine and original dust jacket. From front flap of dustjacket: "In this volume, leading specialists in book history consider examples from the sixteenth to the twentieth century to chart some of the paths followed by books through the European network of print. This may focus on on the large collections accumulated by Renaissance scholars, but may equally involve tracking multiple copies of the same work through the marks of ownership left by unknown readers. "Books on the Move" represents an important contribution to an understanding of the shifting interactions over time between libraries, collectors and the book trade." (Inventory #: 50427)
