Print in the Indian subcontinent
Contextual new editions

The twenty-nine essays collected in this book represent a broad range of historical research – extending over detailed examinations of key personalities, presses, and processes related to early printing in the Indian subcontinent as well as activities in the governmental and evangelical realms and their effects in the creative and public spheres. The essays have been newly revised, and augmented with numerous illustrations of the material discussed within them for the first time. It is hoped that beside making foundational research in the field more widely accessible, the book will provide a much-needed glimpse of the range of original artefacts from early printing activities in various Indian scripts.
