We know that Edward IV had a rather large library of books. On this episode the wonderful Danie Burton joins us to discuss Edward IV’s introduction to printed books, when the printing press was brought to England, and the man who brought it.
Imagine a world where books had to be written by hand. While it guaranteed beautiful craftmanship it was not accessible to all. The printing press introduced a world to medieval England that many could not have imagined.
