Abstract

This Latin edition of Assertions on Luther (1545) by John Fisher (1469-1535) was printed by Charlotte Guillard (d.1557), who over a lengthy career became one of the most important printers of the Latin Quarter in Paris. It seems Guillard was destined for the print world. After being widowed twice – first from printer Berthold Rembolt, then from Claude Chevallon, a bookseller and printer – she took over both businesses, and ran them efficiently. She owned five printing presses, had 25 employees, and a stock of 13,000 books. The books Guillard produced, like this one, were recognized for their beauty and accuracy.
