1565: Michel de Roigny (2)
Title: ‘Legatus seu de legatione legatorumque priuilegiis officio ac munere libellus. Ad titulos de legatione et legatis.’
Nigel Roche (2000, p 47): ‘A simplified and laterally-reversed version of the scene is used by Michel de Roigny. The only substantial difference from P is what might be a double stack of paper behind the beater.’
Falconer Madan (1895, page 235): ‘1565 at earliest. Michel de Roigny succeeded Jean de Roigny in 1565, and printed at Paris until 1591. His only device is a printing-press within an ornamental framework, and at foot MR conjoined beneath the double cross used by his predecessor. This is similar to No. 15 but reversed, the compositor being on the (true) right of the picture in the present engraving. (Reproduced in Silvestre, No. 625.).’
