Pierre Le Dru
(1488–) 1494–1511/1512 (1515)

Imprimeur, libraire-juré (apparently in succession to Etienne Jehannot).

Renouard dates the start of Le Dru’s career to 1488 but his earliest dated book was produced in 1494 (BMC). His career appears to end in 1511, with one further book recorded for 1515 (Inventaire Chronologique, 1515, no. 1029). He was associated with Etienne Jehannot in the fifteenth century and inherited material from him, especially Jehannot’s device (Renouard 488). Regularly described himself as ‘magister Petrus Le Dru’. His output is almost entirely in octavo format, mainly printed in Latin.

Undated incunables: a number of undated editions have been assigned to the early sixteenth century.
IA.40743, Praecordiale devotorum: date confirmed as [c.1500?].

Addresses
Renouard records two addresses, apparently used concurrently:
1488–1505: Supra carnificinam vici sancti Iacobi (rue St-Jacques, near the Boucheries-St-Benoît).
1496–1509: In intersignio cornu prope Mathurinos or in vico Maturinorum (rue des Mathurins, at the sign of the cornet).
