Show Summary Details


The last stages in the business of making and marketing books were the storage of printed sheets and their sale, bound or in quires, direct from the warehouse or a retail outlet or outlets. The importance of outlets is perhaps clearer than the question of storage, thus this chapter deals with that first, and comes back to shops later.

Keywords: warehouses; stocks; printing; books

Chapter.  11519 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Literary Studies (1500 to 1800)
