Chronicles of England
Keywords:William Caxton, Printing
AbstractKellogg considers the first (1480) and second edition (1482) of the "Chronicles of England" printed at William Caxton's press at Westminster and its various imitations at other presses. He concludes that "As a contribution to the knowledge of history, the Chronicles of England is of limited value. However, for the study of cultural history, the book is invaluable. In it one finds narrative built upon narrative, a series of stories which somehow cumulatively illustrate a people's sense of the turbulence, richness, and wonder of their nation; and which vividly reflect an uncritical and intense national pride.
