On our earliest printed book…1440

Dr Stephen McDowall, Chancellor’s Fellow in History at the University of Edinburgh, has written a fascinating paper on the earliest printed book in the Library collection:

‘Bibliographical Notes on the Early-Ming Copy of the Zhouyi zhuanyi daquan at the Edinburgh University Library’, Journal of the British Association for Chinese Studies, Vol. 4, August 2014.
