The introduction of printing in Italy coincided with the flowering of the Renaissance. Enterprising printers quickly established themselves in many towns, and a complex interrelated network of authors, suppliers and booksellers developed to serve the expanding market both at home and throughout Europe. Among the products of this industry were many of the finest books ever printed. The history of the book in Italy over three centuries has provided a host of interesting problems for modern bibliographical scholars, as is exemplified in this volume."
