Preface (to the 2003 edition)

James Moran's exceptionally diverse and energetic contributions to the London printing scene from the 1940s were cut short by his sudden death in 1978 at the age of sixty-one.
Introduction (to the 2003 edition)

James Moran's Wynkyn de Worde, Father of Fleet Street was written in 1959, when Fleet Street was still at the heart of newspaper production, national and even international, and the boom of presses could still compete with the traffic noises of the street itself.
Chapter One
'Fleet Street' has a wider connotation than that of the mere London street running from Ludgate Circus to the Strand.
