Mr. Blackwell gives a panoramic view of the whole world which is concerned in the making and marketing of books. It is, however, no superficial survey- the present position and problems of authors, publishers, booksellers, printers, book-binders, paper-makers, and typefounders are discussed by a constructive, stimulating mind which has a truly remarkable grasp of the many factors in book production and distribution. Those who work in any capacity in “the book world” cannot afford to miss reading this brilliant little book, while those of the greater “book world”—the general reading public—will learn from its pages where the book-trade, printer no less than author, stands to-day, and what are its hopes for the future.The text of this book formed the first Dent Memorial lecture given by Mr.

Blackwell at Staioners’ Hall, London, October 1, 1931.
