Islip #5079 Nicholas Hill - a native of the Low Countries who came to England in 1519, began printing in 1546 + by 1553 had turned out about 35 books. In 1551 he printed a "Matthew" version of the Bible for Toye Bonham, Petit + John Wight. In Chaucer's Works, Hill used an English texture type very similar to that of the 1542 ed but his decorative initials are quite distinctive. Some of them were originally cut for John Reynes. This book came to over 700 pages. Some of Hill's initials + decorative ornaments passed into the hands of the printer J. Kingston + we recognize them along with a texture font very similar to Hill's in the ed. printed the Kingston in 1561. There are 2 different issues - one rarer + earlier. J. Kingston set up his own shop at the west door of St. Paul's in 1556 + printed until 1585. Caxton - the text of his 2nd ed. of the Canterbury Tales remained the direct or indict basis for all subsequent ones until the 18th C.
