PhD title: A bibliographic analysis of the titles printed by printer/publisher John Danter between 1591 and 1599
Supervisors: Professor Tiffany Stern and Dr Simon Smith

My project will begin with a bibliographic analysis of the texts the Danter printed during his short career, before using this knowledge and the biographical accounts we have of his life to piece together a broader understanding of not only how his printshop functioned but also an insight into Elizabethan printing as a whole. By marrying together all aspects of his business I am hoping to uncover his commercial strategy and another lens through which to view printing piracy.
