Book Review:

Thoroughly revised, restructured and updated, A History of British Publishing covers six centuries of publishing in Britain from before the invention of the printing press, to the electronic era of today. John Feather places Britain and her industries in an international marketplace and examines just how ‘British’, British publishing really is. Considering not only the publishing industry itself, but also the areas affecting, and affected by it, Feather traces the history of publishing books in Britain and examines: education politics technology law religion custom class finance, production and distribution the onslaught of global corporations. Specifically designed for publishing and book history courses, this is the only book to give an overall history of British publishing, and will be an invaluable resource for all students of this fascinating subject.

Book Review:

George III, who reigned from 1760 to 1820, is remembered today for his loss both of the American Colonies and his own sanity. Over the last decades historians have looked again at his life and reign and what has emerged is a more sympathetic portrait. George III was far from being the intellectual mediocrity of legend. He was an active supporter of the latest advances in science. A voracious buyer of books, his collection was in due course to double the size of the national library. And when he died there was a national outpouring of grief that has rarely been equalled until modern times. This study, while giving an account of the King's personal and political life, will seek to place it in its social, constitutional and international context so that the reader can reach their own verdict on George III.

Book Review:

Printed images were widely disseminated in early-modern Britain, yet, by comparison with texts, they have been relatively neglected, even by historians to whom they ought to be of the greatest interest. This volume helps remedy this state of affairs. Complementing the online digital library of British printed images to 1700, it offers a series of essays which demonstrate the many and varied ways in which images can better integrated into the history of the period. Including contributions from many leading exponents of the cultural history of early-modern Britain, it repeatedly underlines how every facet of British culture in the period can be better understood with an appreciation of printed images.
