Jean Ier Du Pré
1481-1504

Imprimeur, libraire-juré

Du Pré’s dated work terminates in 1502 (Inventaire chronologique). The colophon of an edition of December 1504 has impressum ab successoribus magistri Iohannis de prato; it was printed for booksellers in London. Renouard records that his widow Claire Dimanche worked at the same address until 1507 and was still alive in 1513. A book was printed at the sign of the Two Swans in 1514 (IS001404); the Inventaire chronologique (1514, no. 762) records its printer as ‘successeurs de Jean Ier Du Pré?’. Renouard records no other firm working at the Deux Cygnes.

Address
In vico sancti Iacobi ad signum duorum Cygnorum;
Aux deux Cynes en la grant rue Saint Iacques (rue St Jacques, at the sign of the two swans).
