Cristina Dondi (Oxford University, United Kingdom) 

Abstract: The paper will provide an update on the collaborative international efforts to discern the production, distribution, and use of the European presses active during the first fifty years. Looking more widely at the production of the later centuries will offer the opportunity to discuss issues of methodology, cataloguing, research, and CERL’s contribution and commitment to our understanding of the European printed heritage.
