A directory of 5,200 authority records for French (more than 50%) and foreign printers and booksellers who operated between 1500 and 1800 and whose publications are held by BnF.

It is aimed at anyone who needs to identify printers and booksellers from any country whose names appear in editions predating the industrial age (e.g. library professionals, booksellers, hobbyists, collectors, and researchers). It currently includes 612 places and 31 countries spread over 4 continents.
