First edition. Near Fine/very good. Lovely copy still in the un-printed plain dust wrapper. Contents fine, fresh and free of markings, no foxing at all. The leaf from 1482 is complete, no tears and has some edge staining (as mounted in 1938), hinged mounts still holding nicely. Quarter cream cloth boards, brown paper sides decorated with Caxton's device on front and back, printed paper title label on spine. All near fine (minor depressed spot on front board, no bumps, very fresh looking, including the paper label spine which looks about as new). The dust wrapper (plain white, no lettering) is age toned and has a couple of small closed tears, still doing a fine job protecting the book. Printed in Deepdene Text typeface on mould-made paper. No bookplates or signs of previous ownership, very clean. Nice copy, desirable both as a Grabhorn and as a Leaf Book. Hamel and Silver, Disbound & Disbersed 76.
