Abstract

abstract:

This article examines the role of migrant publishers in German literary culture and the book market in the seventeenth century. Focusing on Christoph Le Blon’s network of second-generation migrant publishers, including Joachim von Sandrart, Friedrich Hulsius, and Lucas Jennis, it argues that migrant circles in and around Frankfurt functioned as transfer zones for literary cultures between Germany and other European countries. Frankfurt publishers were often part of transnational migrant networks and were especially important for the introduction and popularization of new forms of religious literature in early modern Germany.
