Error and Print Culture, 1500-1800

Saturday 5 July 2014 9:30am — 6:00pm

A one-day conference at the Centre for the Study of the Book, Oxford University. Convened by Dr Adam Smyth (adam.smyth@balliol.ox.ac.uk), in the Pitt Rivers Museum Lecture Room, University of Oxford.

Recent histories of the book have replaced earlier narratives of technological triumph and revolutionary change with a more tentative story of continuities with manuscript culture and the instability of print. What role might error have in the history of the hand-press book?
