The Dicts or Sayings of the Philosophers

From the first dated book printed in England. The Dicts or Sayings of the Philosophers. Printed by Caxton at Westminster, 1477. British Museum, Phot. Oxford University Press.

William Caxton (c. 1415~1422 – c. March 1492) was an English merchant, diplomat, writer and printer. He was the first English person to work as a printer and the first person to introduce a printing press into England. He was also the first English retailer of books (his London contemporaries were all Dutch, German or French). [Wikipedia]
