[Though less famous than his contemporaries Garamont and Granjon, Pierre Haultin (ca.I5I0-87), ranks among the better French type designers of the sixteenth century. He was instrumental in the Calvinist publishing campaign of the I550s and in developing a sturdier and more economical design of roman type. His types remained popular unto the end of the eighteenth century, a few even unto the first quarter of the nineteenth century. This paper attempts to describe the typefaces he may have cut and to assemble the evidence for attributing them. It describes 39 typefaces, viz. I5 romans (§§ I-I5) in a first part, and 8 italics (§§ I6-23), 4 Greeks (§§ 24-7), and I2 musics (§§ 28-39) in a second part., Though less famous than his contemporaries Garamont and Granjon, Pierre Haultin (ca.I5I0-87), ranks among the better French type designers of the sixteenth century.
