-===== Researching Print Runs ===== 
  
-Many historians seeking to measure the impact of the ‘printing revolution’ in fifteenth century 
-Europe have taken a quantitiative approach, multiplying the total of all editions 
-by the number of copies in a typical edition. However, whereas the Incunable Short Title 
-Catalogue (ISTC) lists more than 28,000 fifteenth-century editions that are represented by 
-surviving specimens, the number of lost editions will always remain indeterminate. The 
-second factor in the equation – the typical or ‘average’ fifteenth-century print run – is just 
-as indeterminate as the first, if not more so. Inevitably, the ‘editions × copies’ formula 
-has produced estimates of fifteenth-century press production that range anywhere from 
-eight million to more than twenty million pieces of reading material. Such irreconcilable 
-results (in which the margin for error may be larger than the answer itself) only serve to 
-demonstrate that any effort to arrive at a meaningful quantification of fifteenth-century 
-press production will require a much more systematic analysis of the available data on 
-print runs.  
  
-Eric White has conducted a study; a census of print runs for fifteenth-century books, which takes a step in that direction by asking a much more basic question: what is the available data? 
- 
-Download Eric White'​s {{:​resources:​links_to_other_resources:​printruns_intro.pdf|full introduction}} and {{:​resources:​links_to_other_resources:​15cprintruns.pdf|database}} of 15th century print runs of incunabula.\\

-===== Incunabula: Price Index ===== 
-The Glasgow Incunabula Project references prices of books as actually recorded in the books, and also prices from other sources such as marked up booksellers'​ catalogues etc. Listed chronologically (earliest first) and then in shelf-mark order, differentiating between currencies: http://​www.gla.ac.uk/​services/​incunabula/​prices/​.
