French Academic Editor Alain Baudry dead – After completing his studies in law and literature, he was given the opportunity to work with the first significant university bookshop on the Montreal campus to produce the literary anthology “Music of New France” in 1964.
In 1971, he returned to France and acquired control of the “Library of Marceau,” a used book store on avenue Marceau in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.
He acquired “Aux Amateurs de Livres International” in 1984, a business that ranks second in the export of French books to academic libraries in the US, Canada, and Japan and increases the number of active subscribers. Then he stepped up his publishing of literary works by 17th- and 18th-century French authors and started writing reviews of the time.
