A History Of Cambridge University Press by David McKitterick


Original Title: A History Of Cambridge University Press

This is the first of three volumes concerning the history of the oldest press in the world, a history that extends from the sixteenth century to the present day. Although there was, briefly, a press at Cambridge in the early 1520s, the origins of the modern University Press spring from a 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. In the event no book was printed until fifty years later, but from 1583 to the present the line of University Printers stretches in unbroken succession. Covering the period from the Reformation to the end of the seventeenth century, and drawing on a wealth of unpublished or unfamiliar materials, this volume explores the University's attitude to its Printers, the books they chose to print, and the circumstances in which they worked. For the first time, the early history of the Press is set in its context - of authors, University authorities, and readers, and its activities are fully related to the wider issues of the book trade in Britain and overseas. This book will be of interest to all involved in the history of politics, literature, the Church, education and social life in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Britain.

A Short History Of Cambridge University Press by Michael Black


Original Title: A Short History Of Cambridge University Press

A Short History of Cambridge University Press is an account of the world's oldest publishing house, from its foundation in 1584 through to the present day. It emphasises the constitutional basis of the Press, which is an essential part of its parent university, and highlights the moments of crisis and change: Richard Bentley's revival in the 1690s, the Victorian renaissance in the 1850s, the rise of modern university publishing, two world wars, and the crisis of the 1970s, resolved by Geoffrey Cass's bold reconstruction. This history brings out the unique nature of the organisation, which is recognised as a charity but which trades with vigour throughout the world and now publishes over 1000 titles a year. Michael Black, former University Publisher, is the author of many books, including the full length history, Cambridge University Press, 1584-1984, which he wrote for the Press's Quatercentenary in 1984.
