Court, Benoît de


Lawyer, horticulturist, and book-collector in Lyon.

"Benoît le Court's bindings are of particular interest as undoubted Lyonnese covers dating about 1540-1550. They demonstrate how very different a real Lyonnese binding of that time was from the elegant productions, with coloured mosaics and interlaced strapwork known as Lyonnese manufacturings, but probably Parisian" -- British Library Database of Bookbindings.
