Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Very Good/Very Good. 1984. Reprint. Hard Cloth Cover. Sm 4to 0521264731 Dust jacket complete unclipped. Blue cloth with bright gilt titling, backed in black, on spine. No ownership marks. 343 pages clean and tight. In 1984 the Press celebrates four hundred years of continuous printing and publishing, and this history gives a readable and not-too-formal introduction to that unique record. It is the story of the development of the printing and publishing arm of the University of Cambridge, from the medieval system of resident stationers who dealt in manuscripts to the present large printing and publishing house which produces computer software and audio cassette tapes as well as books (mostly now computer-set) . The narrative is given its proper setting in the development of the University, which has inevitably determined the history of the Press itself; in the history of the book trade as a whole; and in the intellectual and political history of England which has at times affected the fortunes of the Press. The story has unique elements: a royal charter on which the University's right to print and publish was founded, a commitment to Bible printing from the beginning, the development of an equal commitment to learned printing and publishing, and a centuries-long struggle with the London book trade, which resented competition. There are anecdotes about powerful personalities, from Richard Bentley to Stanley Morison, which give colour and life to the sober black-and-white history of printing and publishing. ., Cambridge University Press, 1984

This readable and informative chronicle traces the unique history of the world's oldest press. It tells the story of the development of printing and publishing in the University of Cambridge, from the medieval system of resident stationers who dealt in manuscripts to the present international printing and publishing house. The story is told in the proper context of the growth of the University, which has inevitably determined the history of the Press itself; in the history of the book trade as a whole; and in the intellectual and political history of England, which at times has affected the fortunes of the Press. Amusing anecdotes and vivid descriptions of powerful and colorful personalities help to make the story enjoyable to read. business and investing,education and reference,humanities,language arts,literature,literature and fiction,popular economics,publishing and books,textbooks,writing research and publishing guides Humanities, Cambridge University Press
