Abstract

Kempe, of which excerpts only were printed in the sixteenth century, before the manuscript was lost General works until the 1930s – so it hardly had a chance to change history). Likewise, the Directory for 1450- 1649 includes More’s Utopia and Copernicus, and that for 1650-1899 the Book of Mormon and the RR 2018/180 Communist Manifesto, all of which could be said to have really changed history, and could have been well illustrated. Perhaps it was the publisher which Michael Collins with Alexandra Black imposed constraints on the size and spread of the Dorling Kindersley work? London If we look at the books that were selected, we may summarise many of them as one of the following categories: foundational religious texts 256 pp. (plus later editions or translations of them, e.g. the ISBN 978 0 2412 8933 4 (print); ISBN 978 0 2413 2304 5 Bay Psalm Book); ground-breaking scientific (e-book) works; major classics of literature which “made it £20 new”, in Pound’s phrase; seminal works on politics, society and economics; and books Keywords Books, Culture, History significant in aspects of their printing and Review DOI 10.1108/RR-09-2018-0136 production (e.g. Braille, cyanotype).
