Precarious: From Manuscript to Print in Early America (Zamorano Lecture)



David Hall discusses the challenges of writing and publishing in colonial America, when authors sent documents to England for publication, only to see them altered dramatically by far-away editors and printers. Hall is professor of New England church history at the Harvard Divinity School. He delivered the annual Zamorano Lecture, an event sponsored by the Zamorano Club, Southern California’s oldest organization of bibliophiles and manuscript collectors.
