Jacques de Sanlecque

Jacques de Sanlecque started his own foundry in Paris in 1596, and ran it until 1648. Various successors kept it going until it came into the possession of H. Haener in Nancy in 1786. A few details on Jacques de Sanlecque and his successors, in chronological order:

  • 1596-1648: Jacques de Sanlecque (b. 1558, d. 1648, Paris) had a bookstore before he set up his foundry. He studied under famous typefounder Guillaume Le Bé.
  • 1648-1660: Jacques II de Sanlecque (b. 1612 or 1614, d. 1659 or 1660) was the son of Jacques I.
  • 1660-1688: Veuve Jacques de Sanlecque. According to some, such as Lottin, it was Jean de Sanlecque's brother Louis, who ran the foundry from 1661 until 1688.
  • 1688-1716: Jean de Sanlecque (b. ca. 1660, d. 1716).
  • 1716-1757: Veuve Jean de Sanlecque.
  • 1757-1778: Jean Eustache Louis de Sanlecque (d. 1778)
