Humanism For Sale
Making and Marketing Schoolbooks in Italy, 1450-1650
Paul F. Gehl
Welcome to Humanism For Sale, which concerns the ways books were written, designed, printed, and marketed for schools in Renaissance Italy.
This started out to be a scholarly book, but I have decided to publish it as a blog instead. This dynamic form will allow me to present source documents in facsimile, and to revise, correct, and discuss my research with many potential readers. I am thinking of at least three groups:
Or you may wish to go directly to the quick summary, the abstract, or table of contents.
My reasons for publishing in this form are outlined in a Personal Statement. My background is summarized in a resume or Curriculum Vitae. Lots of people have helped me with this book and this blog; they are thanked in the Acknowledgements.
Feedback is welcome in the usual blog format. I invite comments from anyone, but I will necessarily work on the blog only as time permits.
