520    The backbone of this book on books is a history of a most 
       unusual concept of the book that developed in South Asia 
       with reference to the Veda' By the 19th century, regional 
       cultures of print showed an uneven and spatially 
       discontinuous development across the Indian subcontinent. 
       They variously fed on regional patterns of communication, 
       configurations of power, patronage, and a new economic 
       regime. Their development formed part of tremendous 
       transformations in the structures of power, statecraft, 
       authority, and communication that the subcontinent was 
       going through while being gradually absorbed into the 
       globalizing orbit of the emerging British Empire. The 
       period witnessed a general shift of knowledge-production 
       sites and relocation of distribution and text-circulation 
       networks towards new urban centres'. This book tries to 
       understand how the emerging regional cultures of print 
       created conditions for, inspired, and accommodated 
       differently configured projects of bringing out printed 
       editions of Vedic texts while leaving distinct traces of 
       their respective nature on their editorial principles, 
       book format, typographic form, and publishing ideology.
