This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to provide an account of the entangled histories of print and the modern stage, addressing the meaning of this relationship for the theatre itself and for the broader cultural understanding of text and performance between the 16th and 19th centuries. The products of dramatic and theatrical printing, their embodied lives in books and scripts, in theatres and scenes are at the centre of this study. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
