Printing in England from William Caxton to Christopher Barker

The page of an exhibition held in England in 1977! Gives lots of information on the era. Some nice images also, but mostly text:

The images below are William Gilbert's "De magnete", printed in London by Petrus Short in 1600 (top), Galen's and "De temperamentis, et de inaequalia intemperie" from 1521 (middle), and James Pilkington's "A godlie exposition upon certaine chapters of Nehemiah", printed in Cambridge by Thomas Thomas in 1585 (bottom).
