We hope you have enjoyed the first week of our course, and thanks for all of your comments and insight.
Next week, we will be exploring how books were sold in Western Europe between 1450 and 1800 including
- Captivating stories behind bestselling books such as the Nuremberg Chronicle and the Bible.
- Intricate images of printer’s devices, title pages, and advertisements.
- Examples of how books were sold at auction, collected by connoisseurs and traded at fairs.
