The first book produced in England

was printed by William Caxton, in the Almonry, at Westminster, in the year 1477, and was en­titled “Dictes and Sayings of the Philosophers.” It is a small folio volume, very beautifully printed on ash-gray paper, with red initial letters, and is remarkable for its evenness of colour and distinctness of type.

Taken from Gesta Typographica by Chas. Jacobi, 1897, page 4.
