Jean or Jehan Petit, Johannes Parvus in Latin, was a printer, publisher and bookseller in Paris [1] [2] From 1493 to 1530, he printed about one tenth of all publications in Paris, over ten thousand volumes.
Petit was one of the four main booksellers of the Université de Paris and contributed significantly to the spread of humanism of the early Renaissance in Paris. He published a large number of first editions. His collaborators included Robert Estienne and Josse Bade. Petit was considered an example of a successful early printer.
