"Future Reading" begins by glancing at book digitization in 2007, then races over print history to grapple with antecedents. There are some chestnuts in the article, like the Library of Alexandria, Dewey, and microform, but also some unusual (for a general audience) touches.
For example, Grafton mentions the printing career of Giovanni Andrea Bussi (but not his role in the first modern censorship case). He touches on Jeremias Drexel, who apparently wrote an information guide ("Goldmine," which I haven't found yet). Thomas Harrison appears, and his cabinet connected to Leibniz (but not to the latter's computing experiments, oddly).
