Deadline: Tuesday 30 October 2018.
some of you may know about the upcoming 2019 Erlangen conference on the early modern paper trade in Europa. Also, some of you may have heard that we will publish the conference proceedings. A volume titled "The Paper Trade in Early Modern Europe: Practices, Materials, Networks", edited by Anna Reynolds (York) and me, will be published in Brill's series "Library of the Written Word". Most of you may know that the "Library of the Written Word" is an international peer-reviewed book series that publishes monographs, edited volumes, source materials and bibliographies on a variety of subjects, related to the history of the book. The edited volume has been accepted to the series, and the invited and interested contributors signed their consent forms already. Due to short term changes we are happily able to invite one or two more chapters for our section „Usual deadlings“. If you think that your research would fit in the section on usual dealings of the paper trade between the 14th and 18th century in Europe, please feel encouraged to contact me ( and Anna Reynolds ( ) within the next 14 days with a short abstract of your topic. Deadline is the end of October 2018. Please consider, that we will need your chapter of about 8.000-9.000 words by May 2019. Also, please make sure to address the leading perspectives of the conference, as announced in the conference prospectus.
