Buchwesen in Böhmen 1749–1848

Claire Mádl (ed.), Petr Píša (ed.), Michael Wögerbauer (ed.)

This encyclopedic volume represents the second published output (after Frank-Frimmel’s Buchwesen in Wien, 2009) of a topographical project on the book business in the Habsburg Monarchy from the early years of Maria Theresia’s reign to the failed Vormärz revolution of 1848. In alphabetical order, its three chapters include firms, actors and a topographical register interconnecting both firms and actors who were involved in editing and printing houses, the binding and the commercial distribution of printed matter in Bohemia, 1749-1848.
