Full title:
We make known to all (...) that a number of Danish books, printed in unknown places and printed rather incorrectly, have been imported into [the] realm and made available to the public, where they have attracted attention.

Full title original language:
Giøre aller Vitterligt, att eptersom vi komme udi forfaring, huorledis atskillige danske bøger paa fremmede och udi trycken ubenenfte steder gandse ucorrect opleggis och siden udi vore riger och lande indføris, offentlig fal holdis och ditraheris (...).

Abstract:
This ordinance is one of the earliest official documents of how Denmark-Norway responded to the international book market and the illegal importation of books from abroad. Clearly in line with the censorship policies of the previous century, it shows how the state struggled for total ownership and control of the domestic book market, this time with direct reference to the problems caused by the international trade in books.

Commentary: No commentaries for this record.
