Books Info:

Books Between Europe and the Americas free pdf Books between Europe and the Americas is a ground-breaking collection of essays by thirteen distinguished international scholars. It opens with a survey of current research, presenting fresh historical perspectives on the exchange of culture and ideas across the Atlantic. Contributions reveal how distances were bridged and isolated communities supported and strengthened by the transmission of books, print and correspondence. In particular, the collection offers pioneering comparisons between the northern Atlantic and that of Spanish and Portuguese territories further south. The volume opens with a survey of current research in transatlantic book history and explorations of overseas news in the 1620s, the American reception of Faustus and later accounts of scandal and heroism, and print and manuscript transmission in early Canada. Other essays consider British Atlantic naturalists, the Dutch New York book trade, the circulation of Latin and Greek texts in North and Central America, the Belfast-Philadelphia book trade, the transatlantic Brazilian novel, the arrival of the monitorial system in Spanish America, and US book imports and transatlantic crusades against slavery in the mid nineteenth century.
