André Bocard
1491-1532

Imprimeur; libraire-juré (from 8 July 1508, in succession to Antoine Verard).

His imprints use the forms ‘Bocard’, ‘Boccardus’, and frequently ‘Boucard’.

Dating: Bocard dates two books in 1502 according to the calculus romanus, possibly under the humanist influence of Josse Badius who was working for him as an editor at this time. A volume of February 1506/7 appears to be dated more parisiensi.

Press correctors: Josse Badius worked for Bocard after leaving Lyon and before starting his own press in 1503.
