Geoffroy Tory is a singular figure in the history of the French Renaissance. Editor, translator, librarian and printer, he was passionate about all aspects of books: typography, layouts, illustration and binding, as well as orthography, grammar and punctuation, which were developing rapidly during Tory's lifetime. (In fact, it was Tory who introduced the cedilla in the French language.) Geoffry Tory: Imprimeur de Francois 1er offers a fascinating account of the man's life and work and his relation to the Renaissance in France and beyond.
