' ...a fine resource for those interested in the details on the role of publication in the Reformation.' Calvin Theological Journal, Vol. 34, No. 1 'Academic collections on Reformation studies will need to include The Reformation and the Book.' Reference Reviews, Vol. 13, No. 5 'The Reformation and the Book contains a wealth of material not easily available elsewhere and the secondary references are particularly valuable.' SHARP News, Vol. 8, No. 3 'Important books provoke other books, as the Reformation demonstrated: now that it is available in English, this collection can provoke even more.' Libraries and Culture, Vol. 34, No. 4 '...this collection of essays offers a comprehensive view of the role of printing in the spread of the Reformation...the detail and scope of these studies ensure them a...durable place in scholarship...this volume promises to...establish book studies as a substantial component of Reformation history, and offer sure guidance to researchers into the dissemination of religious ideas.' Church History, Vol. 69, No. 1 '... extensive and richly detailed...there is so much local detail, nuance, and information in this volume... Both the original editor, Jean-Francois Gilmont, and the editor/translator of this volume, Karin Maag, deserve to be congratulated for their work in producing this coherent mosaic of interlocking pieces and for bringing it to an undergraduate and generalist audience in English.' The Catholic Historical Review '... invaluable to Reformation historians and students of book-history alike... there is in this book much useful bibliographical information which is not otherwise very accessible to English readers.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History '... powerful and excellent collection... What this collection show(s) is that the early modern book is an object of extraordinary power, yet also of conflict and of division.' Journal of the Early Book Society
