Literacy and Development in the West (a Pelican Original), Cipolla, Carlo M.
4 Cipolla, Carlo M. Literacy and Development in the West (a Pelican Original)
Harmondsworth Penguin 1969 First Paperback Good 12 mo 
143 pp. Light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Edges of text block browned, foxed, and stamped ("English Department") Page edges lightly browned. Prev. owner's name inked to first page. "English Department" stamp on lower margin of one page. (No other institutional/library markings of any kind.) Internally bright and clean; solidly bound. "[R]anges from medieval monastic communities, where literacy was the sacred monopoly of small elites, through the bustle of nascent capitalism and the polemics and printing presses of the Reformation, to that great watershed in popular education, the Industrial Revolution. This book is an object-lesson in the craft of the historian. From European recruitment papers, statistics, marriage registers and legal documents the author has isolated and reconstructed a crucial but neglected process of historical change -- the transformation of a world bound by custom, ceremony and spectacle into a sophisticated technical civilization under the rule -- and sometimes the tyranny -- of the printed word."
