A landmark publication that catalogues the history and development of the printed image Gutenberg’s invention of moveable type made it possible to print letters. But images could only be printed using two other technologies that were developed alongside letterpress. One depended on wooden blocks which were cut and printed in relief, the other on copper plates into which lines were cut by engraving or etching and were printed on a rolling press.Copper-plate printmaking developed into a huge business employing thousands of people, and dominated image production for nearly four centuries across the whole of Europe.Its processes remained very stable, and a man of 1500 could have walked into a printing shop of 1800 and understood what was going on. During the nineteenth century this world was displaced by new technologies, of which photography was by far the most important.

For some time before his death in July 2015, former colleagues and students of Paul Langford had discussed the possibility of organising a festschrift to celebrate his remarkable contribution to eighteenth-century history. It was planned for 2019 to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the appearance of his seminal A Polite and Commercial People, the opening volume in the New Oxford History of England series, Paul's best-known and most influential publication. He was delighted to hear of these plans and the tragic news of his death only made the contributors more determined to see the project through to completion. The importance of A Polite and Commercial People within its own time is unquestionable. Not only did it provide a powerful new vision of eighteenth-century Britain, but it also played a vital part in reviving interest in, and expanding ways of thinking about, Georgian history. As the thirteen contributors to this volume amply testify, any review of the field from the 1980s onwards cannot ignore the profound effect Paul's research had on the social and political publications in his field. This collection of essays combines reflection on the impact of Paul's work with further engagement with the central questions he posed. In particular, it serves to re-connect various recent avenues of Georgian studies, bringing together diverse themes present in Paul's scholarship, but which are often studied independently of each other. As such, it aims to provide a fitting tribute to Paul's work and impact, and a wider reassessment of the current direction of eighteenth-century studies.

The Invention of Rare Books

Private Interest and Public Memory, 1600–1840

When does a book that is merely old become a rarity and an object of desire? David McKitterick examines, for the first time, the development of the idea of rare books, and why they matter. Studying examples from across Europe, he explores how this idea took shape in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and how collectors, the book trade and libraries gradually came together to identify canons that often remain the same today. In a world that many people found to be over-supplied with books, the invention of rare books was a process of selection. As books are one of the principal means of memory, this process also created particular kinds of remembering. Taking a European perspective, McKitterick looks at these interests as they developed from being matters of largely private concern and curiosity, to the larger public and national responsibilities of the first half of the nineteenth century.

Der Südtiroler Maler und Bildschnitzer Michael Pacher (ca. 1435–1498) nimmt eine besondere Rolle in der Geschichte der europäischen Kunst ein. Einerseits gelten seine großen Flügelaltäre – wie jener von Sankt Wolfgang am Wolfgangsee in Oberösterreich – als Glanzleistungen der Spätgotik, andererseits darf Pacher als einer der ersten Renaissancekünstler des Nordens gelten. Bei einem frühen Aufenthalt in Padua lernte er die Werke von Mantegna, Donatello, Uccello und Lippi kennen. Wie kein anderer Künstler außerhalb Italiens machte er sich die neuen Konzepte des zentralperspektivischen Bildes zu eigen. Die Spannung zwischen den geographischen und stilistischen Polen macht den Reiz seiner Werke aus, warf aber auch Probleme auf, denen der Künstler mit erstaunlich innovativen Lösungen begegnete. Der Band stellt das Gesamtwerk Michael Pachers in Wort und Bild vor und zieht eine Summe der bisherigen Forschung. Anhand von Werkanalysen wird auch versucht, dem intellektuellen Profil dieses Künstlers auf der Schwelle zur Neuzeit auf die Spur zu kommen.

Asiaten in Europa

Asiaten beteiligten sich im 19. Jahrhundert in vielen Bereichen an innereuropäischen Debatten über Moderne und Dekadenz, ausgetragen auf so unterschiedlichen Feldern wie den Wissenschaften, aber auch in Kunst und Religion.Schon vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg war die Verunsicherung der Europäer mit Händen zu greifen, Debatten um die Dekadenz der westlichen Kultur nahmen zu. Das Buch fragt danach, welche Rolle Asiaten in diesem Prozess spielten und an welchen kulturellen und wissenschaftlichen Debatten sie sich beteiligten. Es untersucht beispielsweise, was sie zur künstlerischen Moderne (wie dem Impressionismus) beitrugen, aber auch, welche Rolle der zunehmende Rassismus für sie spielte. Die untersuchten Beiträge reichen dabei von Club-Gesprächen über Zeitungsartikel hin zu Fachartikeln.
