Estimating the output of 17th-century English printers

Dr Austen Saunders, Director of the Printed Books Census for The Oxford Traherne, has published new estimates of the output of English printers in the seventeenth century. These shed new light on the state of the book trade in Restoration England when the first printed books by Thomas Traherne were published. Dr Saunders’ findings can be read here in the journal Seventeenth Century.
