Antoine Caillaut
Printer in Paris, 1482–1501, 1505–1506


Caillaut is known to have sold his house at the sign of the Cup of Gold in 1501. There appears to have been a discontinuity in his output between that date and c.1505, though Renouard suggests that he might have continued working from that address though he no longer owned it.

A number of incunable and later editions of the Stella clericorum have some acrostich verses at the end giving the name Antoine Caillaut; these verses seem to have been copied from edition to edition and cannot be safely used to attribute unsigned editions to Caillaut (see BMC viii, p.48). Isaac listed a Stella clericorum (3833.a.21) under Caillaut, presumably on the basis of this acrostich but the types do not match and the edition is here attributed to Pierre Le Dru.
