Book Description

 This book reconstructs the history of print and publishing in colonial Bengal by tracing the unexpected journey of Bharat chandra’s bidyasundar, the first book published by a Bengali entrepreneur. The introduction of printing technology by the British in Bengal expanded the scope of publication and consumption of books significantly. This book looks at the developments and the parallel publishing initiatives of that time. It examines local enterprises in colonial Bengal engaged in producing and selling books and explores the ways in which they charted out a cultural space in the 19th century. The work sheds fresh light on book production and the culture of print and narrates the processes behind the printing of books to understand the multi-layered literary practices they sustained. A valuable addition to the history of publishing in India, This book will be useful to scholars and researchers of South Asian and Indian history, Bengali literature, media and cultural studies and print and publishing studies. It will also appeal to those interested in the history of Bengal and the Bengali diaspora.
