New Monumental Volume of the "Greek Bibliography of the 19th century"

Almost 1400 books and independent pamphlets published and distributed in the Greek language from 1819 till 1832 have been gathered and meticulously recorded in the second volume of the “Greek Bibliography of the 19th century”, a lifelong project of the well-known historian, Philippos Iliou.
Designed from scratch from Phillipos Iliou, the project actually sums up his life’s work, offering extensive internal descriptions of all the documents printed over this period, indexes of announcements and book criticisms published in the contemporary press, data about the prices and the impressions; it constitutes a multi-purpose tool for the reader.
The “Greek Bibliography of the 19th century” offers its users the opportunity to form an overall framework for the study of book production and how books were perceived by the Greek-speaking populations in the 19th century, when the broader Ottoman Empire experienced severe turbulence because of the revolutionary movement that led to the establishment of the first independent nation in the area.
This volume is practically an inseparable part of the monumental first volume, that started with the Greek publications of the period 1801-1818 and was printed in 1997. Having been already sold out, it is being re-published in a CD-ROM and distributed along with the new second volume.
The second volume primarily contains published books and several independent pamphlets in regard to the Greek War of Independence, such as books printed in European printing-houses along with others printed offhand and secretly in the revolutionary area.
