What Our Customers Say...

Description

A study of the history of publishing between 1557 - when the stationer's company received its charter - and 1640.

The introduction explains that in this index are included those 'under whose 'hand' copies were in fact entered, or who appear as in some way warranting, approving, or recommending their publication', alongside those who 'were either themselves entitled to act as licensers of the press or were officially recognized as acting on behalf of such persons'.
