Nicolas de La Barre
1496-1528

Imprimeur-libraire

Master of Arts and University teacher before becoming a printer. He frequently styles himself ‘Magister’ in imprints. He printed almost entirely in Latin. His output seems to have been fairly small between 1501 and 1509; the British Library has no datable books for 1501–1505. One imprint (G. Lax, Arithmetica speculatiua, 1515) states that he owned his own types: the book was printed opera ac characteribus Magistri Nicolai de la barre.
