The fox and the bees : the early library of Corpus Christi College, Oxford : the Lowe lectures 2017
Thomson, Rodney M., author
Cambridge : D.S. Brewer, 2018
The library of Corpus Christi College is one of the most famous of all of those in Oxford and Cambridge. It is one of the few pre-1600 libraries to survive in something like its original form, and the only one still in use as a library. Its main space is still the original room built in 1517, and its furniture, if not original, is still early, most of it dating from 1604. A high proportion of its earliest book-stock, whether print or manuscript, still survives, and there is a wealth of documentation that makes it possible to chart the process of acquisition, especially the major donations of the Founder, Bishop Fox, and first President, John Claymond. And yet there is no modern, book-length study of the College Library. The present volume is intended to provide a scholarly but attractive and readable account of the Library from its conception in the mind of Richard Fox, to the appearance of its earliest surviving catalogue in 1589. It is extensively illustrated, highlighting the rarely-seen original bindings of the early books.

"This book was conceived in the context of Turning Over a New Leaf : Manuscript Innovation in the Twelfth-Century Renaissance, a research project directed by Erik Kwakkel and established at Leiden University from 2010 to 2015. It fulfills the desire of both editors to make available a synthesizing study devoted to all major subject areas of twelfth-century manuscript culture in the West. In the fall of 2014 a group of leading scholars was invited to write chapters for this book. The aim was not only to present the current state of research in the various subject areas, but also to highlight the possibilities for new directions in the future" --

The Virago story : assessing the impact of a feminist publishing phenomenon
Riley, Catherine E., author
New York : Berghahn Books, 2018
Virago's hands-on brand of feminism -- Changing the literary landscape -- 'Alternative, autonomous, and viable' : feminist publishing and the mainstream -- Fragmenting feminism and diversifying women's writing -- Working women and the changing face(s) of the book industry -- Third waves and disconnections -- Virago's place in the new millennium's literary marketplace -- Twenty-first century feminism(s) and Virago's role for women's writing.

"The 1970s witnessed a renaissance in women's print culture, as feminist presses and bookshops sprang up in the wake of the second-wave women's movement. At four decades' remove from that heady era, however, the landscape looks dramatically different, with only one press from the period still active in contemporary publishing: Virago. This engaging history explains how, from modest beginnings, Virago managed to weather epochal transformations in gender politics, literary culture, and the book publishing business. Drawing on original interviews with many of the press's principal figures, it gives a compelling account of Virago's place in recent women's history while also reflecting on the fraught relationship between activism and commerce"--

Movable types : roving creative printers of the Victorian world
Finkelstein, David, 1964- author
New York : Oxford University Press, 2018
"This is a study of international print networks developed across the English-speaking world over a significant part of the long nineteenth century. The first study of its kind, it draws on unique sources from Australasia, North America, South Africa, the British Isles, and Ireland, to explore how printers interacted and shared trade and cultural identities across international boundaries during the period 1830-1914. Morality, mobility, mobilisation, and solidarity were central to how compositors and print trade workers defined themselves during this period. These themes are addressed in case studies on roving printers, striking printers, and creative printers. The case studies explore the cultural values and trade skills transmitted and embedded by such actors, the global networks that enabled print workers to travel across continents in search of work and experience, the trade actions reliant on mobilization and information-sharing across the printing world, and the creative ideas that printers shared through such means as memoirs, poetry, prose, and trade news contributions to print trade journals and other public outlets."--
