This week we celebrate the history of books! The Book in History : from Manuscript Volumes to the Present Time describes the long history of printing and books in Europe, starting from manuscript traditions and ending in the 19th century, all within this tiny book. Amazing how the printing press revolutionized the world, and how small you can make it!

Published in 1985 at the Hillside Press by Eleanor I. Irwin. Bound in full leather with gilt decorations and marbled endpapers. Includes several reproductions of printers’ marks.
