Description

Philippe Renouard (1862-1934) published this biographical directory of members of the Parisian book trade from the introduction of printing in 1470 until the sixteenth century in 1898. It replaced the only other existing catalogue, by Augustin-Martin Lottin, published more than a century earlier. Renouard corrected many of the errors in Lottin's catalogue and filled in gaps in information, extending his directory to include names and addresses of booksellers and printers, and the dates during which they were active, and family genealogies. The book also includes a map of the university quarter and city of Paris marked with the locations of former publishing houses. It remained the authoritative source on the topic until the 1960s, when the Bibliotheque Nationale published a newly revised and enlarged version.show more
