Inky Fingers: Scholars and Artisans in the Renaissance Printing House
Join us for a lecture by Anthony T. Grafton, the Henry Putnam University Professor of History at Princeton University, the first event in a new lecture series sponsored by The Friends of the Library. Professor Grafton will speak about the Renaissance printing house, a trading zone where scholars and artisans, authors and business people, men and women all worked together in a confined space and each learned from—and complained about—each other. Reception to follow.
A specialist in the history of early modern Europe, Professor Grafton's work focuses on such diverse topics as the cultural history of Renaissance Europe, the history of books and their readers, the history of scholarship and education, and the history of science. Professor Grafton has written ten books and served as co-author, editor, co-editor, or translator of nine more. He has received prestigious awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship (1989) and the Mellon Foundation’s Distinguished Achievement Award (2003).
