Thomas Creede

(c. 1549—1616) printer

Quick Reference

Running a small London printing office, he produced mainly religious and literary books, particularly contemporary dramatic works. Much of his output was self-financed, but by 1600 Creede was increasingly turning to trade printing. This led to a change in his production, with fewer literary works, in favour of political and, especially, religious books.
