Edited by Caroline Archer-Parré and Malcolm Dick

Liverpool University Press

Eighteenth Century Worlds LUP

  • First significant publication on John Baskerville in over 40 years
  • The collection lifts Baskerville out of the narrow scholarly niche in which he currently sits and situates him more properly in his wider context
  • Focuses on previously unexplored details of his personal life, his contribution to fields beyond printing, and his relationship with the broader technologies and ideas of Enlightenment
  • Great strength of the book is its provision of a base upon which future scholarship can be built
  • It contains work by established international scholars as well as new researchers who are investigating his impact and influence
