Description

The colophon states that this is a "New edition of William Caxton's Recuyell of the historyes of Troy, done after the first edition, corrected for the press by H. Halliday Sparling, and printed by me William Morris." This is one of 300 copies printed on paper; 5 more were printed on vellum.
