Full title:
Prussian Cabinet Order of 28 November 1766 generally banning reprinting as documented in Friedrich Hermann Meyer, 'Reformbestrebungen im achtzehnten Jahrhundert', Archiv für Geschichte des Deutschen Buchhandels, 12 (1889): 246

Full title original language:
Cabinets-Ordre vom 28. November 1766

Abstract:
The Cabinet Order was a reaction to both the establishment of the Publishers' Association in 1765 and to a Prussian-Saxon dispute caused by a reprint carried out by the Berlin publisher Pauli in 1765 (d_1765). The Cabinet Order illustrates, furthermore, how a general ban on reprinting - even of works that were not privileged - was instituted in Prussia before the relevant sections of the Prussian Civil Code came into effect in 1794 (d_1794).

Commentary: No commentaries for this record.
