Manuscripts and Early Printed Books in Sicily from 1750 to 1850

NEW YORK, NY – Pace University Press is excited to announce the release of the Journal of the Early Book Society, Volume 23.

This volume features an analysis of manuscripts and early printed books in Sicily from 1750 to 1850, with a focus on circulation and social networks among the antiquarians in addition to exploring the use of manuscript charms in late medieval England and an analysis of Christian motifs in the first Darmstadt Haggadah.

This peer-reviewed journal is edited by Dr.  Martha Driver, co-founder of the Early Book Society for the study of manuscripts and printing history. “The scholarship on the history of the book is written by authors from all over the world,” said Driver. “It makes for compelling reading for anyone interested in the subject.”
