Isabelle de Conihout, Curator of Rare Books at the Bibliothèque Mazarine, Paris, shares some important recent discoveries about Jean Grolier (1489 or 90-1565) and his famous library. In this transcript of a talk given in connection with the Grolier Club exhibition "Printing for Kingdom, Empire & Republic: Treasure of the Imprimerie Nationale" (December 6, 2011-February 4, 2012), Dr. de Conihout tells how insight, meticulous scholarship, and rare good fortune enabled her to add "Ten New Groliers" to the list of books known to have been owned by one of the greatest book collectors of all time. Illustrated in color.
