Summary
'Printing History and Cultural Change' explores printing conventions in the eighteenth century and the gradual tendency to abandon the use of capital letters, italics and small capitals in English books, heralding the advent of a cleaner, and smoother, printed page. It studies a range of texts and the changing roles of authors, booksellers, printers and the reading public.
