This is a 12-page brochure offering information and a schedule of the program of the Caxton Congress organized by the Printing Historical Society in London in September of 1976. It caught my eye because it includes as part of its title presentation on the cover the illustration Caxton used in his 1484 Aesop for DLS. It is one of Caxton's most successful woodcuts, I think. The back cover has a detail of, I believe, The Lobster and His Mother. How nice to run into an old friend while scanning the shelves of this bookstore! Aesop gets around! The program includes a registration form and a notice of a book, A Pride of Printers, sent to members.
