The Coming of the Book : The Impact of Printing, 1450 - 1800 Paperback
The emergence of the book was an event of world historical importance, and heralded the dawning of modernity.
In this much praised history of that momentous process, Lucien Febvre and Henri-Jean Martin mesh together economic and technological history, sociology and anthropology, with the study of modes of consciousness to root the development of printing in the changing social relations and ideological struggles of Western Europe.
