Description - The Practice and Representation of Reading in England by James Raven

How did people read in the past? Where, when, and why did they read? And what did they think readers and reading were for? Drawing on fields as diverse as medieval pedagogy, textual bibliography, history of science, social and literary history, this collection of essays highlights the cultural conventions involved in reading, and explores personal reading experiences. The Practice and Representation of Reading in England constitutes a major addition to our understanding of the history of readers and reading.
