Booksellers and Printers in Provincial France 1470–1600 is the first comprehensive guide to the Renaissance French book trade outside of Paris and Lyon. This volume presents short biographies for over 2700 booksellers, printers and bookbinders – over sixty of whom are identified as fictitious.
The biographies are accompanied wherever possible by the details of commercial partnerships, the type used by printers and reproductions of over a hundred signatures. The book provides the details of over six hundred women who either married into the trade or were independently active. The introductory essay analyses the nature, evolution and geographic dispersion of the members of the trade. It is an indispensable tool for understanding the French Renaissance book world.

Printing in provincial France has not attracted the same interest as the main centres of print. Using archival as well as printed sources, this book provides a groundbreaking new understanding of the development of printing in the provinces. Though printing in Brittany started during the incunabula period, the presses disappeared in the first decade of the sixteenth century. This work analyses the role of booksellers during these critical years and examines the business models that enabled the presses to return to the duchy. It also looks at issues such as ownership of books, Protestantism and the effect of the wars of the Catholic League as well as offering a much expanded bibliography of editions printed in the duchy.
