    Definitywnie jedna z najlepszych pozycji jakie czytałam w temacie powstania autora jako kulturowego fetyszu. Opracowanie klarownie i przekonująco przedstawia związki pomiędzy ekonomią, powstaniem rynku księgarskiego, rozwojem koncepcji własności i zmianami na gruncie samej literatury, prowadzące zbiorowo do wyłonienia się w końcu XVIII wieku autora. W zasadzie ta jedna pozycja załatwia mi 3/4 doktoratu, muszę tylko przypisy sadzić. Good job.

    I'm using it for a history of copyright essay in law school, but it's not dull and boring like other academic textbooks. It's a must read for anyone interested in books, as material culture, expressions of ideas, and copyright.

    Interesting and authoritative. A must read for anyone interested in books, as material culture, expressions of ideas, or anything else.
