Welcome to the Britain in Print timeline

The Britain in Print timeline tool is designed to assist in giving an overview of the context in which print spread throughout Europe and, in particular in Britain, from the publication of Gutenburg’s Bible up to 1700.

You can use the text links above to highlight an area that interests you and enter a year in a search box to find out more about that year.

The text links for the timeline allow you to define specific areas of context. For example, the Europe in Print link will display developments in printing on mainland Europe.

The Spread of Print listing shows how print spread through the British Isles, with each town or city’s first publication between 1477 and 1700 being listed. You can click the link to view further information on the publication.
