This essay collection derives in part from a memorable conference, “Pedlars, Pamphlets and the Popular Press (1600-1850),” held at the University of Utrecht in 2010. It focuses on the book trade as a “series of dynamic processes” (3) including, crucially, the distribution networks which enabled books to move between their originators and readers.
