  • DATABASE SEARCH RESULTS FROM Google Scholar about Primary Sources on Copyright 
    Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900)

    "This is a digital archive of primary sources on copyright from the invention of the printing press (c. 1450) to the Berne Convention (1886) and beyond. The UK Arts and Humanities Research Council
    (AHRC) funded the initial phase (completed in 2008) focusing on key materials from Renaissance Italy
    (Venice, Rome), France, the German speaking countries, Britain and the United States.

    We are now adding materials from other countries. Primary sources from Spain were published in 2012, and the Netherlands will follow in 2014. Using the archive for the first time? A possible starting point is here.

    For each of the geographical zones / jurisdictions, a national editor has taken responsibility for selecting, sourcing, transcribing, translating and commenting documents. These include privileges, statutes, judicial decisions, contracts and materials relating to legislative history, but also contemporary letters, essays,
    treatises and artefacts.

    The national editors’ brief was to limit the selection to 50 core documents for Germany, France, Britain and Spain, and to 20 core documents for Italy and the US (these covering only a shorter period). However, the editors have sourced many more contextual documents which are fully catalogued, and linked to the core
    materials. Document selection has been scrutinised by an international advisory board."

    Bibliography of Typography and Printing

    This is my personal list of recommended books on Typography and Printing,
    chosen to help the student, amateur printer, and the professional graphic

    artist learn more about type and design. I have selected these books because I think they are the best books on Typography and Book design, the most interesting books on Printing and Typography, and the most useful books on Typography and Printing. I've thrown in my favorite books on printing types and the history of printing, too. I've read all these books and I'd be happy to answer questions about them if I can help.
