    More Information:

    Charlotte Guillard was born in the late 1480's and little is known of her childhood. She married the printer Berthold Rembolt in 1502. Rembolt worked with Ulrich Gering at the well-known Paris printing house, Soleil d'Or.

    Guillard worked with her husband up until his death in 1518 or 1519. The printing industry at the time was open only to men and their widows. And so by guild system rules she took over the business. Her name, not included on her husband's imprint when he lived, appeared now under the somewhat somber imprint of "Vidua defuncti magistri Bertholdi Rembolt" or "widow of the deceased master Berthold Rembolt."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
