New Paperback 978-9607-9124-90-8 This book discusses printing technologies and readership in the Spanish empire in the Americas.

He suggests that the reader is implied in the means of producing a text and, likewise, a reader suggests some technological process through which texts can be produced. (Item ID: 157733)
