Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019967941X, Hardcover)

A concise edition of the highly acclaimed Oxford Companion to the Book, this book features the 51 articles from the Companion plus 3 brand new chapters in an affordable format! The 54 chapters introduce readers to the fascinating world of book history. Including 21 thematic studies on topics such as writing systems, the ancient and the medieval book, and the economics of print, as well as 33 regional and national histories, offering a truly global survey of the book around the world, The Book: A Global History is the most comprehensive work of its kind. The three new articles, specially commissioned for this edition, cover censorship, copyright and intellectual property, and book history in the Caribbean and Bermuda.

All essays are illustrated throughout with reproductions, diagrams, and examples of various typographical features.
Beautifully produced and highly informative, this is a must-have for anyone with an interest in book history and the written word.
