In "Renaissance Cultural Crossroads: Translation, Print and Culture in Britain, 1473-1640," twelve scholars assemble the latest interdisciplinary research in the fields of translation and print in Britain and appraise for the first time the connection between the two. The section "Translation and Early Print" discusses how translation shaped the beginnings of British book production. 'Translation, Fiction and Print' examines some Italian and Spanish literary translations and their paratexts. "Instruction through Translation" demonstrates how translators established an international fund of knowledge. "Shaping Mind and Nation through Translation" focusses on translations specifically disseminating knowledge of medicine, navigation, military matters, and news. The volume constitutes a timely contribution to the ever-expanding fields of translation studies and print history but is also relevant to cultural, social and intellectual history.
