The Business of Enlightenment

Product description

The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, Cambridge, USA.
Darnton, Robert.

In tracing the story of Diderot's Encyclopedie, Darnton uses new sources - the papers of 18th century publishers. He shows how the material basis of literature and the technology of its production affected the substance and diffusion of ideas. He fully explores the workings of the literary market place, including the roles of publishers, book dealers, travelling salesmen, and other intermediaries in cultural communication.

Hardback with jacket. Illustrated in black and white.

Condition:. Good. Text pages clean and unmarked. A 1cm closed tear to the front of the jacket, and some brown marks on the back.
