Richard was known for his love of knowledge and his extensive library. In 1484 William Caxton, who printed the first ever book in England, dedication his translation of ‘Ordre of Chyvalry or Knyghthode’ to Richard, writing ‘And I shall pray almighty god for his long life and prosperous welfare and that he may have victory of all his enemies and after this short and transitory life in heaven where is joy and bliss world without end. Amen.’
