The Book Before Printing: Ancient, Medieval, and Oriental

"A remarkable work. . . . For sheer weight of information there is no equal to it." — The Spectator. 

Based on years of painstaking research and incorporating a wealth of new material and conclusions, the text is enhanced throughout by abundant illustrations — nearly 200 photographic facsimiles of priceless manuscripts in museums and libraries around the world.
