The seller was great and I had no issues with them. The book itself is apparently a defective edition. I checked with others and all the images are missing starting after page 202. Not good.

This is a new, revised edition of a book originally published in 1955 and revised in 1961 and 1974. The author was a German scholar who emigrated to Great Britain after Adolph Hitler and the Nazis came to power, and became a British citizen. The reviser is a British book designer and editor.

This scholarly book provides a wide-ranging look at the history of printing in the Western world, beginning with the appearance of the Gutenberg printing press around 1450 C.E. and ending with the state of printing in the 1990s. The author discusses numerous topics associated with the history of printing, including: (1) how printing spread from Germany to the rest of Europe; (2) the changing mechanics and economics of printing; (3) the evolution of types used in printing presses; (4) changes in the printing industry; (5) how various printers sought to avoid and evade censorship, or come to terms with it; (6) how the spread of printing lead to changes in the kinds and categories of people who read books; (7) the extension of printing to publications beyond books (e.g., pamphlets, newspapers, periodicals); (8) changes in the formats, types, and genres of books printed; and (9) the impact of digital and other modern technology on printing.

The book is a scholarly text written in a somewhat dry, academic style that might not appeal to a casual reader. This book could be of interest to readers with a scholarly interest in the following topics: (a) an interdisciplinary history of printing and publishing; (b) how printing had an effect on society, religion, and politics; (c) how the history of printing and publishing was influenced by changes in technology; (d) the history of books; (e) the intellectual history of the West; and (f) the history of communications.

A hardcover edition of this book is available from Oak Knoll Press in New Castle, Delaware, U.S.A.

Steinberg's contribution to the literature of bookmaking should not be overlooked. While scholarly in content, it does not presuppose any special knowledge of the reader. It is an introduction to the history of books. It is both informative and accessible. I am not an academic, I am a bookseller with an interest in my trade.
If this is too dry for you there are other works worth reading, such as McMurtrie's THE BOOK.[aka: THE GOLDEN BOOK]The golden book;: The story of fine books and bookmaking, past & present
