This study examines the nature of eighteenth-century book
subscription lists: how they worked and the role they played in the
eighteenth century book trade. It also analyzes specific lists and
how they may be used as exemplars for those wishing to investigate
and analyse other lists. From eighteenth century book subscription
lists we can learn much about the reading public, who bought books
and why. But the lists may also provide information about many
other aspects of society and culture. This is an area where there
has been little sustained study in the past and this work ties
together what has been done and adumbrates what may potentially be
done in the future. It will appeal to scholars and students alike
who are interested in any aspect of eighteenth century life and
art, not only those focusing on the book trade.
