Lucien Febvre's and Henri-Jean Martin's l'Apparition du livre,
published in 1958 (translation in English Coming of the Book in
1976), has earned a significant position as the starting point of the
modern book history. During the past fifty years, book history has
become one of the most innovative new research themes among the
history studies. The workshop introduces Febvre's and Martin's title
as well as discusses the modern book history's significance and its
approaches' and methodologies' development.
