An addition to the bibliography of Nantes



PRINTING began at Nantes with an isolated venture in 1493, when on 15 April an otherwise unknown printer named Etienne Larcher completed an edition of Jean Meschinot, Les Lunettes des princes, Vingt-cinq ballades. Commemoration de la passion. Of this exceptionally rare incunable the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris has two incomplete copies, one of them printed on vellum; and there are copies also in the Bibliothèque Sainte Geneviève, Paris, and at LeMans, the last-named being also incomplete.
