William Caxton (c. 1422 – c. 1491) was an English merchant, diplomat, and writer. He is thought to be the first person to introduce a printing press into England, in 1476, and as a printer was the first English retailer of printed books. Neither his parentage nor date of birth is known for certain, but he may have been born between 1415 and 1424, perhaps in the Weald or wood land of Kent, perhaps in Hadlow or Tenterden. In 1438 he was apprenticed to Robert Large, a wealthy London silk mercer.

William Caxton, the first English printer, who, as a translator and publisher, exerted an important influence on English literature. He notably published The Canterbury Tales, Le Morte Darthur, and Confessio amantis. Learn more about Caxton’s life and career. In the epilogue of Book III of the completed translation, entitled The Recuyell of the Historyes of Troye, he tells how his pen became worn, his hand weary, his eye dimmed with copying the book; so he practised and learnt at great personal cost how to print it.
