An exhaustively researched, radically revisionist account of how the Stationers' Company came to be incorporated and given a monopoly of printing. Blayney is an independent scholar widely considered to be the leading expert on the book trade in Tudor and early Stuart London.
His publications include The Texts of King Lear and their Origins , which reconstructed the printing of the First Quarto in unprecedented detail, and his groundbreaking monograph, The Bookshops in Paul's Cross Churchyard , which pioneered the field of book-trade topography. His controversial article on 'The Publication of Playbooks', which demonstrated that Victorian literary scholars were mistaken in believing Tudor and Stuart play-quartos to have been among the best-selling books of their day, won the Sohmer-Hall Prize for Publication Data Place of Publication.
