    Ranging chronologically from the earliest printed books to the latest transformation of The Book of Common Prayer, these 18 essays are published in honour of Peter Isaac (1921-2002), the foremost scholar of the English provincial book trade. Among the varied subjects under discussion are John Gregory and the Leicester Journal; the Edinburgh Cabinet Library, 1830-1844; the Denbigh printer-publisher Thomas Gee (1815-1898); and books in 18th century Whitehaven.
