William Caxton

Academics at Reading University have found a fragment of a book published in the 1470s by the English printing pioneer William Caxton. Worth an estimated £100,000, the two pages - of a work called Sarum Ordinal - advise priests on feast days for English saints. "It is astonishing that it has been under our noses for so long," says a librarian. Ref. Source 8t
