Jonathan Edwards and Transatlantic Print Culture tells the story of how Edwards’s works were published in the eighteenth century. Indiviidual chapters discuss the contributions of the various people who were involved on both sides of the Atlantic and their motivations. In the process of this narrative, Jonathan Edwards and Transatlantic Print Culture explains what the printing, publishing, and editing of Jonathan Edwards’s publications can tell us about religious print culture in the eighteenth century. More specifically, it clarifies how the way in which his books were put together shaped the understanding of him as an author, and how such details as the formats, costs, quality of paper, length, bindings, and the number of reprints and abridgments affected the reception of his works in America and Europe. The book situates Edwards and his works in the specifics of his time and place, with extensive background on colonial commerce and the contributions of geography to printing and publishing.
