At Bruges in 1473 or 1474 English merchant, diplomat, writer, and printer William Caxton issued with scribe, bookseller and printer, Colard Mansion, from whom Caxton probably learned the art of printing, Caxton's English translation of Raoul Lefèvre's The Recuyell of the Histories of Troye. This was the first book printed in English.
A presentation copy with a specially made engraving showing Caxton presenting the book to his patroness, Margaret of York, is preserved in the Huntington Library. Regarding the technical bibliographical aspects of this copy see Hellinga, "William Caxton, Colard Mansion, and the Printer in Type 1," Bulletin du bibliophile (2011) 106, footnote 2.
