For more information on the early period I recommend two books:
H. Love, Scribal Publication in Seventeenth Century England, Oxford, 1993
P. Thornton,Handwriting in America, a Cultural History, Yale 1996, chapter one .
For more information on the development of scholarly apparatus and the infrastructures that served literacy I suggest:
R. Chartier, The Order of Books, Stanford, 1992, and J. Yates, Control through Communication,Baltimore, 1989.
