This volume brings together five studies on the booktrade in France and America during the revolutionary period at the end of the eighteenth and beginning of the nineteenth centuries. The papers encompass three major aspects of the subject: publishing, printing and bookselling. While little is known about the bookmen selected, their contributions to the book trade and the history of printing were highly significant. Nancrede was responsible for many firsts in American cultural history; Stone started a long-lasting press that printed many important Americana; Dufief sold many great libraries and was Jefferson s book agent. This work is based throughout on original research and two of the papers appear here for the first time.
