At Bruges, Belgium, in 1473 or 1474 English merchant, diplomat, writer, and printer William Caxton issued with scribe, bookseller and printer, Colard Mansion, Caxton's English translation of Raoul Lefèvre's The Recuyell of the Histories of Troye. ISTC no. il00117000.
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.
It is thought that Caxton learned the art of printing from Mansion.
