11,914 Elizabeth Eisenstein, Divine Art, Infernal Machine: The Reception of Printing in the West

Elizabeth Eisenstein, author of the massively influential history on the
impact of the introduction of printing on Western society, *The Printing
Press as an Agent of Change* (2 vols., Cambridge 1979), will discuss her
book *Divine Art, Infernal Machine: The Reception of Printing in the West
<http://www.upenn.edu/pennpress/book/14786.html>* (U Penn, 2011).

“Eisenstein’s research is impressive, reaching far and wide across
languages and centuries. Her knowledge of the history of publication
engages the wealth of recent scholarship and extends as far back as Roman
copyists. . . . Her breadth enables her to identify topoi and their
mutations; to observe long-term trends, diminishing ripples, and delayed
reactions; and to distinguish what is new or newly dressed in authors’
concerns and readers’ complaints.”? *Journal of Scholarly Publishing*
