Chapter Summary

André Wechel became a citizen of Frankfurt on 23 December 1572 on payment of the sum of 8 florins 16 shillings, giving his profession as ‘Buchführer’. André Wechel was a man who was scupulous in complying with legal requirements, and he is not an obvious person to associate with clandestine publication. The publishing war began with the 1573 edition in octavo of his Ciceronianus by Pietro Perna, the much respected humanist publisher of Basle. It seems clear that Wechel was aiming at little short of a monopoly of Ramus publication by putting into practice the commercial principle. This attempt at monopoly was targeted at the North and Central European market but excluded Fran.
