Montaigne in Print: The Presentation of a Renaissance Text

Montaigne in Print Exhibit

Exhibition curated by Phillippe Desan, Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures (French), and Arnaud Coulombel, graduate student in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.

Featuring editions of the Essais by French philosopher Michel de Montaigne, this exhibition explores the relationship between author, editor, printer, and the book as a physical object by tracing the bibliographic history of the text and its presentation. The exhibition was curated by Professor Philippe Desan and graduate student Arnaud Coulombel, both of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. A substantial catalog was published jointly as a special issue of the journal Montaigne Studies.
