Summary

This series of nine scholarly essays focuses on the book as it helped facilitate commerce and culture over the last five centuries. Leading scholars explore difficult questions arising from the unique relationships that have existed for centuries between economics and literary culture. This work opens with an insight into the kinds of transformation that text undergoes as it crosses and recrosses onto logical boundaries. Several other essays explore the deep and mutually implicating relationship that has existed between economics and literary culture. Co-published with St. Paul's Bibliographies, Ltd.
