Print and Society in Early Modern England

Reading List

The Reading List follows the schedule of lectures and supervision topics.

However, many books cover several topics, so you need to read around, and need to make

regular use of items in the opening section, ‘Introductions’.

You should do some reading on every topic, not just those you select for supervision essays.

• At the end, there are additional sections listing reference works and examples of early modern • library catalogues.

It is well worth browsing the open shelves in the UL Rare Books Room: all shelfmarks below • beginning with ‘B’ are to be found there.

Likewise, browse the best journal in the field, The Library (B990): it’s the journal that most • often occurs in this Reading List.

One abbreviation is used here: CHBB: The Cambridge History of the Book in Britain [plus • volume number – vols. 3, 4, and 5].

Shelf-marks are provided (in many cases) for the UL, but not for the Seeley Library.

• No item on this list is prescribed in a formal sense: the aim is to offer a range of relevant • reading. Do track down and recommend further works. This list will be updated periodically.

Another good place to browse: English Faculty Library, class E325: basement, half-way along.
