      Johannes Laverentzen, Johannes Lauerentzen (Laurentzen) , ca. 1648-31.8.1729, historical and numismatic author, book printer. Born in Ribe, died in Copenhagen. (Nic. K.). L., who was the granddaughter of the historiographer AS Vedel, was 1680 Thomas Kingos amanuensis and was shortly after the royal. handwriting. In addition, he was closely associated with the art chamber. In 1703 he published a supplement to Holger Jacobæus' Museum Regium, and he published this work again in 1710, revised and enlarged. In 1693 he published Das preiszwurdigste Gedächtnüsz des Königs Friderich II,a popular laudatory account of the king's life and government, 1705 Vedel's surviving work on Svend Tveskæg with the preface to his Danish royal chronicle. He worked on a reworking of Vedel's translation of Saxo, but only managed to get The Danish Chronicle published in 1713 ,1st book, provided with remarks and pictures. His literary activity and long archival service earned him a commission in 1698 as a royal book printer, to which was attached the position of university book printer, otherwise against the wishes of the consistory. With the order came great and lucrative privileges: printing of ordinances, school books, newspapers, hymn books, Bibles. However, it held him hard to assert his rights, and his work has been strictly judged. In 1708 he was given the privilege of publishing a Bible, but it was not until 1716 that he had it printed. Therefore, in the mission college established in 1714, he became an active competitor in the printing of Bibles, and the publication of hymn books was released. As a publisher of newspapers he got in 1719 a more skilful competitor in the enterprising Joachim Wielandt.His printing house burned down in 1728, but he had put it back into operation when he died. In his wealthy home, the children of relatives and friends are brought up. Hans Gram was in his youth their preceptor and was thereby attached to L., so that he continued to act as proofreader, oversaw the printing of the works, yes, controlled the printing house at L.'s departure in the time of the plague. - Consistory Assessor 1698.
