The John Rylands Library has the second largest collection of works printed by William Caxton, the man credited with bringing the first printing press to England in the fifteenth century. The very first volume to be produced at Caxton’s Westminster press was a copy of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in 1476 and although this particular digitised Rylands copy is the second edition printed c.1483, this is the first copy with additional illustrative woodcuts and with corrections to errors in the first edition text.

The entire volume can be viewed online in LUNA.
