1570 - Thomas Vautrollier begins to print books
<< Back


The first book Vautrollier publishes is a copy-book for teaching handwriting. This is written by another Huguenot, John de Beauchesne, a gifted calligrapher from Paris. It is the first printed manual of handwriting to be published in England.

Vautrollier will gain a reputation as one of the best printers of the Elizabethan age. Among the books he prints later are translations of the works of the great Protestant theologians Martin Luther and Jean Calvin.
