Booming Business. Communication, Print and Advertisement in the Seventeenth Century.

Research output: Contribution to journal/periodicalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

News, print and the associated communications were not just a booming business back in the early modern days, but are – research-wise – a ‘hot topic’ at this moment as well. The seven volumes discussed are syntheses of many years of research. The books show overlap due to geography, and events and their stress on news bearing media of various sorts, all amidst the seventeenth century. Each of the volumes is written by an expert on either the Baltic Sea, Germany, or the Dutch Republic. The foci vary from exchange of information to the printing of newspapers and books, to the use of advertisements.
