Summary
"In Johann Froben, Printer of Basel, Valentina Sebastiani offers a comprehensive account of the life and printing production of Froben, a major representative of early modern Europe's most refined printing traditions. Some five centuries after they first appeared in print, Sebastiani provides a bibliography of the 329 Froben editions published in Basel between 1491 and 1527 (including an analysis of some 2,500 copies held in more than twenty-five libraries worldwide), listing the paratextual and visual elements that distinguish Froben's books as well as economic, technical, and editorial details related to their production and distribution. Sebastiani's study sheds new light on Froben's family and career, his involvement in the editing and publication of Erasmus's works, and the strategies he adopted to market them successfully"--
