Frederick Muller Limited, London, first edition, 1976. Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm,. Very Good in slightly edgeworn dustwrapper. viii, 198 pp, ills, plans, portraits. From the blurb: "Commemorated in Westminster Abbey by a plaque, widely honoured all over the world yet, despite all his fame, little is known about Caxton's life. William Caxton began his career as an apprentice to a Mercer of the City of London, then went to Bruges where he eventually became Governor of the English Nation in that city, a post which involved looking after the interests of English XXXXXX the sister of Edward IV. Richard Deacon analyses the many prologues and epilogues which Caxton wrote for the various books he printed and from these builds up a picture of Caxton the man. Here and there the printer gives glimpses of his background, his problems, his opinions of his patrons, his early struggles with translating elegant French into English, then a crude and deficient language. 'Caxton introduced many new words into the English language, many of which are current today, and his adaptation of French words were sufficiently apt to become popular,' writes the author, adding "In this respect he played a remarkable role in strengthening the English language"., Frederick Muller Limited, London, first edition, 1976, Springwood Books Ltd,. Cloth, folio, 31 cm,. Agetoned, otherwise Near Very Good in used dustwrapper. 128 pp, ills, facs., maps ;. From the blurb: "The history of the english newspaper is one of survival against the odds. It survived official suppression in the early 17th century by reporting only foreign news. It survived the Civil War by playing a partisan role. When hard news was in short supply, it survived by inventing the crime, sex and human interest story. It survived the punitive burden of the Stamp Acts - the notorious 'taxes on knowledge' - by ingenious tax evasion. When these ran out, it found loopholes in the law. Successive governments fought the newspapers with implacable energy. The papers survived by going underground, hiding in cellars from the armies of Government spies. In the pages of the newspapers are recorded the events of those times - the humiliating break-away of Britain's North American Colony, the shattering collapse of France in her Revolution, the campaign against Napoleon and social unrest at home.These reports of revolution and war, civil disorder and political corruption can be read, not in the fulsome language of historians, but in the earthy words of practical men describing what they saw. The detail is often totally unexpected, intriguing and at variance with historical interpretation., Springwood Books Ltd,
