In A Changing View from Amsterdam,the esteemed Cambridge librarian David McKitterick takes the readers back to the days of Frederick Muller (1817–81), the most important Dutch bookseller of his time, and offers an absorbing portrait of the nineteenth-century antiquarian book trade in Europe. McKitterick examines bookselling and the international trade in both new and old books as a frame for understanding the history of the book. Further, he considers how this history will affect the future development of the book.
