The Dublin Book Trade and the Home Market
This chapter considers the organization of the Dublin book trade in Ireland. It also discovers how its members dealt together, what books were published by them, how these books were published, and to whom they were sold. In the absence of firm regulation by the Guild, rules that made possible co-existence amongst booksellers appear to have developed through the trial and error of practice until tradition could be quoted as authority. Such rules governed the pressing problems of ownership of ‘copyright’ in reprints, rights in later editions, and rights in original Irish writing.
