 Caxton was England's first printer. There is an introduction by James Moran 383pp The kioriginal work was published in 1861 and 1863 in 2 volumes but, to use Blades own words "they were costly and cumbersome". During the Caxton Celebrations of 1876 - 7 he decided to issue a single volume edition brought up to date with additional material and in a more handy form. It is that edition whcih has been reprinted as being more convenient for today's reader. A superb book.
