About this item

Having written extensively about Erasmus of Rotterdam, Sebastiani here turns to his printer, Froben, a pivotal figure in the history of books and printing and in the spread of Humanism, but whose life has hithertofore not attracted the sustained attention of scholars. By scrupulously investigating previously unknown archival documents and letters, and critically examining the literature on Froben, she reconstructs the publishing and printing activities. She emphasizes the early stages of his career in printing, his relationships with Erasmus and with the press' learned partners, and financial aspects of the production and distribution of his books.
