After 1550, the lead in book publishing passed for a time to the Netherlands This national press established and continued to maintain a standard of excellence for book production in France. Louis XIII also tried to regulate the trade in books.

After 1550, the lead in book publishing passed for a time to the Netherlands. The business founded at Antwerp in 1549 by Christophe Plantin, a Frenchman by birth, came to dominate the Roman Catholic south of the country, both in quantity and in quality. Its finest production was probably the eight-volume polyglot Bible (1569–72), the Biblia regia ( Royal Bible ). The firm was carried on for generations by the descendants of Plantin’s son-in-law, Joannes Moretus (Jan Moerentorf). This national press established and continued to maintain a standard of excellence for book production in France.

The Irish book trade has hitherto been viewed as a footnote to the English trade. M. Pollard, author Trinity College Library, Dublin.

This is the first book to examine the Irish book trade as exemplified by the bookselling practices of Dublin. Previous studies have focused mainly on the English trade discussing Irish practices only as a footnote. This study focuses on Ireland, and draws on a wealth of material including daybooks, imprints, advertisements, and books themselves to build a detailed picture of the fortunes and practices of Irish bookselling. Pollard not only discusses relations with London, but looks in detail at the market at home, the structure and economic background of the Dublin trade, what books were published, and for whom. In addition, Pollard examines the significant expansion of the book trade during the 18th century, and provides the first survey of imports and exports revealing just how many books entered Ireland, and the supply of Dublin books to overseas markets.
