On the other hand, early publishers might not have made very much money,
either.  Thomas Platter (he of the description of Shakespeare's Globe)
was involved in a very unsuccessful printing business in 16th-century
Basel.  He finally pulled out after deciding that it was immoral to keep
spending his investor's money at such a loss.  One might compare how
dot-coms treated their investors.
