Review

"An engrossing book about the traces readers leave behind: the underlining, the ticks and crosses and sketches of flowers, the cutup pages, the red-silk stitching, the heckling commentaries. . . . A generous book about marvelous particulars."--"TLS"

"Sherman's work is indispensable, offering and demanding a complete revision of standard notions of reading in favor of a much more capacious concept of the 'use' of books before the modern era. . . . An essential book."--Stephen Orgel

"A very fine collection of essays that will prove invaluable to scholars, librarians, and book collectors. . . . This book can be read for pleasure, but it is primarily a learned, thoughtful, and theoretically adept examination of the evidence of reading and readers found in surviving English books of the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries."--"American Historical Review"

"Learned and lively. . . . The first comprehensive account of the ways of readers in the last age when books held, or seemed to hold, the answers to all of the most profound questions."--Anthony Grafton, "Bookforum"
