Chapter Summary

Printing returned to Rennes in 1524 when Jean Baudouyn set up his workshop. The period that followed the return of the presses marked a significant shift in the print culture of Brittany. The analysis of the typographic material is a vital part of the attribution of anonymous works. In this case, the task is made more complicated by the lack of signed Caen and Rennes imprints for these years. The interlude between Baudouyn's signed editions and the beginning of Berthelot's printing in Rennes corresponds exactly to the dates during which the "ex carracteribus Parrhisiis" editions were published. It seems perverse to argue that this material was moved from Rennes to another city and back to Rennes a few years later. The analysis of these editions considerably refines our understanding of the importance of the arrival of Jean Baudouyn in Rennes.
