E. Cockx-Indestege, P. Delsaerdt: Le goût de la bibliophilie nationale

Reconstitution et analyse d’une collection devenue légendaire dans l’histoire de la bibliophilie en Belgique. Dans ce volume, les auteurs présentent le résultat de leurs recherches sur la célèbre Collection spéciale du duc Engelbert-Auguste d’Arenberg (1824-1875). Cette bibliothèque de premier plan se trouvait à Bruxelles, tout près du Palais d’Egmont où la famille d’Arenberg possédait déjà une importante bibliothèque d’étude et de lecture. La Collection spéciale était constituée en majeure partie d’imprimés des anciens Pays-Bas datant des XVe et XVIe siècles. Elle visait à illustrer l’histoire des Pays-Bas et l’ancienne littérature flamande et doit donc être comprise comme témoignage de la patrimonialisation du livre au XIXe siècle. Il s’agissait…

William M. Barton (ed.): On Gambling – Pascasius Justus Turcq

Pascasius Justus Turcq was born in the Flemish town of Eeklo. As a young man, he travelled through Spain before devoting himself to the study of philosophy and medicine in Italy. On gaining his doctorate, he returned north and settled in Bergen-op-Zoom, where he worked as a physician and eventually became the city’s mayor. He attended to William the Silent as one of the physicians who worked to save the Prince’s life after the assassination attempt of 1582. Alongside tales of gambling princes and perceptive accounts of the mental suffering experienced by problem gamblers, Pascasius’ De alea is remarkable for its singular…

Jeroen De Keyser, Noreen Humble, Keith Sidwell (eds): On Books – Henri Estienne

Henri II Estienne (1531-98) was the most outstanding member of his family’s long-lived publishing dynasty. He continued the work of his father, Robert, by publishing many unedited Greek texts and completing the Thesaurus linguae Graecae (1572), an expensive venture from which his business never fully recovered. His versatility– as publisher, scholar, corrector, lexicographer and poet – can be seen in the paratextual material in his many editions, and in his own original works. This anthology presents a sample from Henri Estienne’s writings across his career and from different genres. These range from letters, to poetry, to essays, to his Encomium of the Frankfurt Fair….

Valerie Wayne: Women’s Labour and the History of the Book in Early Modern England

This collection reveals the valuable work that women achieved in publishing, printing, writing and reading early modern English books, from those who worked in the book trade to those who composed, selected, collected and annotated books. Women gathered rags for paper production, invested in books and oversaw the presses that printed them. Their writing and reading had an impact on their contemporaries and the developing literary canon. A focus on women’s work enables these essays to recognize the various forms of labour — textual and social as well as material and commercial — that women of different social classes engaged…

Thomas, Drew B.: The industry of evangelism. Printing for the Reformation in Martin Luther’s Wittenberg

Of the leading print centres in early modern Europe, Wittenberg was the only one that was not a major centre of trade, politics, or culture. This monograph examines the rise of the Wittenberg printing industry and analyses how it overtook the Empire’s leading print centres. It investigates the workshops of the four leading printers in Wittenberg during Luther’s lifetime: Nickel Schirlentz, Josef Klug, Hans Lufft, and Georg Rhau. Together, these printers conquered the German print world. https://brill.com/view/title/60114
