This volume brings together the twenty-two contributions presented at the conference by historians of the book from England, France, Switzerland, the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands.

The book underplays the political power and importance of the provinces as the institutional layer that linked the federal state to the cities, the urban system, that is so crucial.
