[ABSTRACT: In 1777 a series of royal decrees caused the restructuring of the booktrade. One of the novelties was the creation of a public domain. The many issues involved with this complicated process are studied in depth, and conclusions are for the most part based on hitherto unpublished sources. Included is an edition of the "permission simple" registers, pinpointing nearly two thousand editions of all kinds of works, copies of which have largely not survived to posterity. (RD)]
