Book Description Grolier Club, New York, exhibition catalogue, 1968, 1968. Limited edition of 1650 copies. Later cloth, gilt handwritten spine-title, original printed wrappers bound in, 8vo, xiv, 62 pp, plates. From the introduction: "The fifty-five works represented here are the very heart and soul of a new phase of English language and literature. It should be recalled that England's first printer, William Caxton, who is represented here by fifteen examples, was much more than a typographer. He was also a translator and editor - very much a man of letters - and unlike most of his predecessors on the continent, he printed in the vernacular and was thus able to influence contemporary taste. He was a sufficiently good businessman to make certain in advance that each of his productions would have a market or please a patron. Consequently Caxton's books were literally read to death. One third of his books were translations made and embellished by himself : the remainder was chiefly divided between popular and devotional works in English poetry and prose romances. " in addition to the 15 Caxtons, there are also represented the following: Wynkyn de Worde (20); Oxford. Eponymous Press (2); Theodoricus Rood (2); John Lettou and William de Machlinia (1); London. Eponymous Press (1); William de Machlinia (1); Richard Pynson (8); Julian Notary (1); Schoolmaster Printer (3); Robert Copland (1). Covers slightly scuffed, boards slightly splayed, name on front free endpaper, otherwise Good. Seller Inventory # ABE-34395
