Product details

Product Description


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.

HASH(0x89279414) out of 5 stars heavy going 17 Jun. 2015
By Celeste - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a Francophone, Francophile, and bibliophile, I was tempted by the subject of this book, but I found the text to be dull and boring. Perhaps scholars of the history of the book will find something of merit here.

HASH(0x898ac2a0) out of 5 stars Did not arrive on time 17 Aug. 2013
By Melissa C - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I needed this book for a class in a foreign country, so I ordered it two weeks before I left the country assuming that would be plenty of time for it to ship within the US. Not only did I get a huge range of dates for the delivery estimate (almost a month), the book did not come before I left, and it did not come within the estimated dates. It took this book a month to get to my house in the states. Do not recommend this company.
