What perceptions did people have of printed material after its introduction into England? How did these perceptions determine their own practices in dealing with books and documents, as producers and consumers? This study explores the continuing relationship between manuscript and printed material in London after Caxton's establishment of a printing business at Westminster in 1476, and the different ways in which people adapted to the availability of new technology. It describes and illustrates a wide range of surviving material in use in London during the period, and investigates the choices made by authors and readers in relation to the forms in which they dealt with the written word, both scribally copied and printed.
