Publisher Description:
The French bookseller, publisher and printer Paul Delalain (1840-1924) was the author of several studies on the history of the book and of the printing press, including L'imprimerie et la librairie Paris de 1789 1813 (1899), and Les libraires et imprimeurs de l'Acad mie fran aise de 1634 1793 (1907). First published in 1891, this book contains the French translation of Volumes 1 and 2 of the Latin Chartularium Universitatis Parisiensis. These records of statutes and regulations, originating from the University of Paris between 1200-86 and 1286-1350 respectively, detail the conditions under which booksellers and stationers were allowed to practise their trade, and give intriguing glimpses of the people involved, including Englishmen and Scots. Delalain's introduction to these documents studies the status of Parisian booksellers in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, shedding light on such points as the difference between a libraire and a stationnaire.
