Two pages from Wynkyn de Worde

Conrad Haebler – the greatest expert on incunabula ever – published five boxes with original pages from incunabula in an edition of 112 copies. This is a leaf from Wynkyn de Worde (= from Woerden in Holland) edition of Chronicles of England (1497) Hain 4998. The two typefaces are based on French examples (WdW types 3 and 5) and are Wynkyns own.
