9780300178210: The Book in the Renaissance

The dawn of print was a major turning point in the early modern world. It rescued ancient learning from obscurity, transformed knowledge of the natural and physical world, and brought the thrill of book ownership to the masses. But, as Andrew Pettegree reveals in this work of great historical merit, the story of the post-Gutenberg world was rather more complicated than we have often come to believe.

The Book in the Renaissance reconstructs the first 150 years of the world of print, exploring the complex web of religious, economic, and cultural concerns surrounding the printed word. From its very beginnings, the printed book had to straddle financial and religious imperatives, as well as the very different requirements and constraints of the many countries who embraced it, and, as Pettegree argues, the process was far from a runaway success. More than ideas, the success or failure of books depended upon patrons and markets, precarious strategies and the thwarting of piracy, and the ebb and flow of popular demand. Owing to his state-of-the-art and highly detailed research, Pettegree crafts an authoritative, lucid, and truly pioneering work of cultural history about a major development in the evolution of European society.

About the Author:

Andrew Pettegree is Head of the School of History at the University of St. Andrews and founding director of the St. Andrews Reformation Studies Institute.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Looking back on her early adulthood, St. Teresa of Avila remarked, “If I did not have a new book, I did not feel that I could be happy.” In this history of the pioneering publishers who transformed Gutenberg's new technology into an epoch-making force, Pettegree recounts the fascinating story of how new books found their way into the hands of Renaissance readers such as St. Teresa. That force, as readers soon realize, reshaped the world of learning, as affordable books swelled enrollment in universities and multiplied municipal schools. But the force of the printed word emerged far from the classroom, as printing presses become potent weapons in political and ecclesiastical conflicts. Pettegree details in particular the ubiquity of polemical pamphlets and broadsheets that stirred popular passions, only to disappear, except as fugitive entries in publishers' catalogs. Though readers gain considerable understanding of technical processes of publishing—such as the making of paper and cutting of type—what they come to see most clearly is the tense political and economic circumstances in which Renaissance publishers operated. Assailed by censors on the one hand and by pirate presses on the other, publishers effected a cultural revolution only through remarkable resourcefulness. A probing chronicle of crisis and change. --Bryce Christensen
