Buchhandelssystem und Wissensraum in der Frühen Neuzeit
[The Book Trade System and Knowledge Space in the Early Modern Period]
Aims and Scope
In 1450, Gutenberg made a pioneering breakthrough in communication by inventing printing with movable type. Using a newly developed theoretical model – the "knowledge space" – this work addresses the question of how the resulting book trade system worked, who was involved, the role the book trade played and the importance it held for the academic and cultural development of society.
