This chapter moves to the wider international world of book distribution. It discusses the complicated networks that existed between Venetian bookmen with agents, book carriers, and foreign printers. It also provides information on the trades routes throughout the Italian peninsula, as well as across the Alps to northern Europe. The chapter details northern European book fairs and explains such marketing tools as book-fair trade lists and printers' broadside catalogues. It concludes with a discussion of individual and institutional customers and collectors, who purchased music books.
