'In recent years Ashgate Publishing has become one of the most dominant forces in the field of early modern studies, and the recent appearance of the impressive volume edited by Michael Hunter [...] is a case in point. This is a lengthy volume of 16 essays and an introduction, all lavishly illustrated with high quality reproductions, with contributors drawn primarily from the disciplines of art history, English literature, and history. The volume should be well received across these, and other, disciplinary boundaries.' Reviews in History 'The book represents a major contribution to the study of early modern print culture - especially the printed image in seventeenth-century Britain - which will appeal to scholars interested in the role of print in early modern Britain's religious, social, cultural, and political history.' Renaissance Quarterly 'This is a large and beautifully produced book, glossy in the best senses, which many historians will find of value, even though most will probably select from it according to their own research agendas. It should also, as its editor clearly hopes, have the effect of making other scholars value this plentiful and underrated category of source material more highly, showing as it does the remarkable range of potential that it possesses.' History 'This volume offers a generous survey of the surprisingly diverse incarnations of the printed image in Britain while at the same time remaining readable and accessible. The reader cannot help but come away from this enjoyable and unimposing survey with an appreciation for the interdisciplinary nature and surprising variety of the printed image in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Britain.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'As a whole, the essays represent the richness of current scholarship on early modern British printed imagery.' English Historical Review '[Communicates a] sense of the healthy diversity of scholarly interests in prints.' Journal of the Printing Historical Society
