Pedro Ocharte

Pedro Ocharte

Pedro Ocharte was one of the first printers in the Americas, active from 1563 to 1592.

Originally from Rouen in France, Ocharte came to the City of Mexico in New Spain around 1549. He married the daughter of printer Juan Pablos, and in 1563 took over the operation of Pablos's press. In 1572, Ocharte was imprisoned by the Inquisition, as one of his prints was considered heretical.

Pedro's son Melchior Ocharte was also a printer.
