Historia del libro

by Albert Labarre

Ese objeto que el antiguo Oriente conservaba en forma de tablillas de arcilla, que los griegos y los romanos desenrollaban ante sus ojos, que la Edad Media encadenaba a pupitres,que nuestros antepasados tomaban en su mano y que ahora nosotros podemos meter en nuestro bolsillo e incluso leerlo en una pantalla, ha ocupado un lugar tal en la expresión del pensamiento y en la conservación de los conocimientos que merece un estudio particular. Esta obra se propone describir la historia del libro, desde la Antigüedad grecorromana hasta sus mutaciones en nuestro mundo moderno, en donde, a pesar de verse enfrentado con los nuevos medios de comunicación masiva, conserva todas sus oportunidades. albert labarre es conservador general honorario en la Bibliothèque Nationale de Francia.
