Printers' & Publishers' Marks in Books for the Greek World (1494-1821)
This publication collects and documents all the printer’s marks of the Greek and international printing houses that made books available to the Greek public. These marks, in all their design variations, are accompanied by annotations regarding the publications that they were associated with, as well as the necessary bibliographic references for each edition. They include the famous first printing houses of Venice, those of Aldus Manutius, N. Sofianos and M. Sessa, as well as the three most prolific printing presses in Greece: those of N. Glykys, D. and P. Theodosius, and N. Saros. A large chapter is dedicated to Hellenic printing activity in the Danubian hegemonies, reproducing, in the form of marks, the heraldic designs that complemented Hellenic publications: That is, to say, the coats of arms of the Greek rulers of Wallachia and Moldavia.
