abstract

Two archival sources of the late 15th century allow us to outline some considerations and comparisons between the cost of living and book prices in Bologna. The first reports books stored in Bologna by the printer/bookseller Francesco Platone de’ Benedetti during his lifetime; the second, the most important for this particular case study, reports the prices and sales of those books made by his heirs.
