Dez coisas que você não sabia sobre seus livros

Eu gostei dessa aqui: “The most remarkable candidate for the inventor of printing was Faust, the legendary sorcerer who sold his soul to Mephistopheles. A simple confusion of names supported the tale: Gutenberg’s financier had been a banker named Fust, whose name in Latin became Faustus.”

E dessa: “In the eighteenth century, “lascivious” or “obscene” books were among the most profitable of all. In France, the “philosophical books” that fueled the Enlightenment included not only the works by Rousseau and Voltaire that we still recognize as philosophical, but many others that would now be labelled as outright pornography.”
