Rare prints found at the University of Reading

Bennetto Photography William Caxton print from the 1470s

As reported by the BBC, the University has found incredibly rare printed pages by William Caxton believed to date from the 1470s. The only other pages from this book known to be in existence are eight leaves held by the British Library. I photographed¬†Erika Delbecque, special collections librarian at the University along with the 500 year old printed pages. It’s good to see the images on the BBC!

The pages will go on public display from 10 to 30 May at the Museum of English Rural Life at the University of Reading.
