The Plantin Press Online

Subject: History

The Plantin Press Online aims to provide in-depth bibliographical information on all editions printed and published by Christophe Plantin (c. 1520–1589) in Antwerp and by his printing office in Leiden until his death on 1 July 1589. It includes references to his typographical material, woodblocks, copperplates, his correspondence, and the Plantin archives in Antwerp, as well as existing copies, bibliographical works, links to digital reproductions, and recent research. Based on the extensive six-volume printed edition compiled by Leon Voet in collaboration with Jenny Voet-Grisolle (Amsterdam, 1980–1983), this open-access research tool incorporates the latest bibliographical findings as well as additions and corrections to the print edition.  

The dataset has been and will be continuously updated and complemented by scholars working on Christophe Plantin and his printed legacy by embedding citizen science, which means we actively encourage users to provide any additional information that would improve the records in the Plantin Press Online. If you have a correction, addition or adaption for the Plantin Press Online, you can fill in our contact form. 

This digital research tool is published in open access in collaboration with Museum Plantin-Moretus

(583 words)

Dutch 'prophet', founder of the sect called 'The House of Love' (known in England as the 'Family of Love'). Munster, 10 January 1502 - Cologne, c. 1580. Not much is known of his life. He resided from c. 1540 until c. 1560 in Emden, then in Kampen and Cologne. At the beginning of his career in the Netherlands (and perhaps before?) Plantin came into contact with the 'prophet' - and most certainly through Niclaes's financial help was able to establish himself as a printer in 1555. Very likely too, …
