The text has been lucidly translated by Paul Saenger and Nadine Saenger and is issued in an illustrated paperback at an affordable price. Its thesis is broad in its implication and is argued clearly and with conviction... A thought-provoking and ambitious work.(Adrian Johns Journal of Modern History)
A fine erudite, and eminently readable book.(Robert L. Dawson Libraries and Culture)
From the Back Cover
The book as the subject of a distinct historical disciple dates from the landmark publication of L'Apparition du livre, by Lucien Febvre and Henri-Jean Martin in 1958.See all Product Description
