And this occurrence made him determine to write a voluminous book on the "wickedness" of the Talmud, in order he said to save Christianity from danger. Nelson's second chapter attempts to detect another important development in the history of political thought: the introduction of redistribution into the mainstream of republican political theory. The partnership between Ibn Adoniyahu, the Jew, and Bomberg, the Christian, is exemplary of some key aspects of Hebrew book production as a collaborative and commercial enterprise, detailed in Nielsen's article. In Ibn Adoniyahu, Stern finds the exemplar of a new kind of what Nielsen calls the "bookman": the editor who emerged alongside the publisher-entrepreneur, the typesetter, and the author as a crucial figure in the production of printed books.

Thereafter, however, many anti-Semites made use of the material gathered in this book, quoting it as being directly from the Talmud without mentioning Eisenmenger; probably because of his notoriety as an enemy of the Jews. Newly established and technologically advanced paper mills in the Zaan, Veluwe and Achterhoek districts were soon able, however, to satisfy national demand and even produce for export.

Sometimes they sympathized with the contents of the work, as was the case with certain factional publications or the writings of political or religious exiles.

Original vellum over boards, title inked on spine in an early hand; vellum darkened and slightly sprung, spine title faded. One of the pioneers was the learned rabbi of the Portuguese synagogue in Amsterdam, Menasseh Ben Israel —who between and printed well over seventy books in Hebrew and Spanish, both religious texts and scholarly works. Regardless of absolute numbers, however, when we look at perceptions and behavior, it seems that during the second quarter of the sixteenth century Jews in Europe and the Ottoman Empire came to see print as the preferred method for publishing a book; at this time we can also identify the first major cultural effects of the print medium. First published init saw 14 Latin editions in its first four decades; it was also translated into Armenian, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Pages age-toned; one leaf with upper outer corner torn away not touching text.

The Amsterdam publisher Willem Jansz Blaeu — [ ]who is renowned for his production of a great variety of high quality publications — from books on navigation, maps and multi—volume atlases to classical editions and literary and scholarly works 11 —, was also active in the mass production of Catholic church books intended both for the use of Dutch Catholics and for export abroad.

According to surveys of fifteenth-century book production based on the holdings of major public libraries, at least twenty thousand—and perhaps as many as thirty thousand—editions in all languages were printed in the first sixty years of printing. Amsterdam had its Jewish quarter, but it was not a ghetto.

The Dutch Republic, Centre of the European Book Trade in the 17th Century

The current book is a careful study of the early modern fantasy about the "Hebrew Republic. There was a tendency in the Roman Inquisition, however, to restrict as much as possible the number of books permitted to be expurgated.

A survey of 17th-century estate inventories in Leiden shows that even among the more affluent middle and upper classes book ownership was not self-evident. Attractively printed in double-column format beginning with a title-page in black and red and sporting a very handsome engraved coat of arms of the work's dedicatee, Manoel Guerrreiro Camacho de Aboim, on the first leaf of the dedication.

He displayed a youthful talent for oratory, and was a noted preacher in his teens. According to the author, until the early seventeenth century, early modern political theorists followed the denunciation of land redistribution that was consistently dominant in Roman sources.

An exception was the municipal library of Amsterdam, founded in and housed in a small chamber of the New Church. As Brian Richardson opens his book on print in Renaissance Italy: The introduction of the printing press to Italy in or shortly before had profound consequences for all users of the written word.

The Centrality of Italy We focus first on a series of case studies on book production and circulation in early modern Italy. This last extensive book-inquisition marked the end of expurgatorial censorship in Italy. A steadfast follower of Paracelsus' teachings, he perhaps had blinders on regarding medical advances of the late 16th and early 17th century.

Finally, let me stress that modern Europeans appealed to the authority of the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinic sources not only to motivate the more progressive aspects of the modern polity, but also such horrific phenomena as racism, the enslavement of the "Sons of Ham," and even genocide.

This is surprising perhaps in that printing established itself as central to Jewish culture earlier in Italy than in other communities and continued to be a central aspect of social and economic life in Italian Jewish communities up to the modern period.

All the Hebrew books of Mantua were again expurgated en masse; and the completed revision was certified to at the end of each book by the signature of one or two revisers.
