One of 138 numbered copies, with a fine leaf, ca. 1495, from Wynkyn de Worde's edition of Bartholomaeus Anglicus' De Proprietatibus Rerum. This was the first English book printed on paper made in England, by her first papermaker, John Tate. A scarce B&B title, there were only enough copies to supply standing order patrons.
