What were the drawbacks of manuscripts?
Answer:

  • Manuscripts could not satisfy the everincreasing demand for books.
  • Copying was an expensive, laborious and time-consuming business.
  • Manuscripts were fragile, awkward to handle and could not be carried around easily as they were big and heavy.
