This book critiques the use of material evidence in studies of manuscript & printed books by delving into accepted notions about the study of print culture. It questions the institutional & ideological ptresuppostions that govern medieval studies,, descriptive bibliography, & library science. The book begins by asking what is the relation between material evidence & the abstract statements made about the evidence; ultimately it asks how the evidence is to be defined.
