§ 17. William Copland

William Copland, probably a son of “old Robert Copland” printer and translator, was the printer of Gawin Douglas’s translation of the Aeneid, which appeared in 1553, and of an undated edition of the same writer’s Palice of Honour. Among other books which came from his press are editions of Caxton’s Recuyell of the Histories of Troy, The Four Sons of Aymon, Malory’s King Arthur, edited by the printer, and A boke of the properties of Herbes, the compilation of which is also attributed to him.
