ABOUT







Laurent [Jean-François Laurent]

J. L. Duplat (d. 1823), Jean-François Laurent and Joseph Gillé (1748-1789) came together in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century to start a typefounding enterprise. This business eventually passed to Laurent by 1827. Also in 1827, H. Balzac bought Laurent's typesetting firm only to leave typefounding in 1828, and the business was entrusted to Alexandre de Berny, who worked with Laurent until 1840 when de Berny was able to buy out Laurent's share.
