A customer of ours recently came across an interesting illustration in a book on the Reformation of the UK and Ireland.
Featuring a leaflet from 1596, at the bottom was the name of the printer, a Mr Thomas Creede.
According to an article on Wikipedia, Thomas was a printer in London during the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras and was “rated as “one of the best of his time.””
His London based printworks were responsible for printing editions of works in English Renaissance drama, especially for ten editions of six Shakespearean plays and three works in the Shakespeare Apocrypha.
