New Media: 1740-1915

New Media: 1740-1915, (2003) Edited by Lisa Gitelman and Geoffrey B. Pingree, MIT Press.

Putting media and mediums into historical context is important. This book does a pretty solid job of it.

Description from MIT Press

Reminding us that all media were once new, this book challenges the notion that to study new media is to study exclusively today’s new media. Examining a variety of media in their historic contexts, it explores those moments of transition when new media were not yet fully defined and their significance was still in flux.
