Press, the oldest publisher in the world, from its foundation in 1534 until 1972. This is a definitive history of Cambridge
University Press, the oldest press in the world. The origins of the modern University Press sprang from the charter granted
to the University by Henry VIII in 1534, to provide for printers who would be able to work outside London and serve the University,
and these volumes chart the history of the Press from 1534 to 1972. Volume I sets the early history of the Press in the context
of authors, University authorities, and readers, and the wider issues of the book trade in Britain and overseas. Volume II
deals with a period of fundamental changes in printing, publishing, and bookselling from 1698–1872 examining how the
forces of commerce collided with the hopes or demands of scholarship and education. The final volume examines the ways in
which the Press established itself as an international organisation with authors and customers across the world. The 3 volumes

A fine copy in original cloth, dustjacket. The third and final volume of David McKitterick’s magisterial history of
Cambridge University Press, the oldest publisher in the world. This volume completes the history of Cambridge University Press
from the sixteenth century to the late twentieth. It examines the ways by which the Press launched itself as a London publisher
in the 1870s, building up its educational and academic lists. It charts how interests in America were advanced, how subjects
were extended and the Press became an international organisation with authors and customers across the world, while at the
same time developing both its printing and its publishing. The volume explores changes in the printing industry, showing how
the Press assumed a leading part in the typographical renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s, and built on this after the Second
World War to acquire an international reputation for the quality of its work. In publishing as in printing, this book analyses
both the pitfalls and the successes in a century of change. £110.00
