Stephanus, Francis

, the eldest son of the preceding, was employed in printing with his step-father de Colines. The “Vinetum” of Charles Stephens, 1537, is the first work to which we see his name and the last is the “Andria” of Terence, in 1547. He sometimes used his father’s mark, but occasionally one of his own, a golden vase placed on a book, and surmounted by a vine-branch with fruit. He never was married, and Maittaire is mistaken in saying he had a son of the same names, who was a printer in 1570. That Francis was the son of Robert, and nephew to the subject of this short article. 2
