History of the German Book Trade

by Wittmann, Reinhard

The book surveys more than five hundred years of writing, producing, selling and reading of books in the German-speaking region of Europe. Reinhard Wittman gives a comprehensive depiction of the journey of the printed word from author to reader in its historical transformations, that is, of the distribution of the book as an intellectual object and a commercial product by publishers and traders from Gutenberg until today.

Comments

‘Wittman’s book is a who-is-who of the history of the book

trade. It offers an overabundance of names, dates and

events.’


Reviews: Deutschlandfunk

‘The book is a mammoth work, it goes far beyond the limits

of a chronological account and shows up contexts that are

otherwise barely intelligible.’


Reviews: Börsenblatt
