    The geography of the book is as old as the history of the book. Yet, while book history is an established field of study, there has been much less focus on geographical approaches to the book. Increasingly, however, new work is pointing to the spatial dimensions of book history. Recognition of the significance of place, of the effects of movement over space & of the importance of location in the making, meaning & reception of print culture has been a feature of this recent scholarship, which often draws upon the history of science as well as upon geography & book history. This volume brings together exciting new perspectives on the geographical dimensions of the book & print culture.
