The Great Caxton Meeting



News-Commentary, Drollery; Reportage, Spoof


Natural History, Publishing, Lecturing

    Reports on a speech by William Buckland on a monument to the printer William Caxton. Buckland's speech, evidently delivered on a tour of Caxton's birthplace, is devoted to such natural historical matters as the 'early history of the Woods and Forests', and the closest he comes to even uttering Caxton's name is mentioning the 'invention of printing'.
