In an earlier number of this journal I described a Dutch New Testament of 1567, issued without an imprint, which consists of two adjoining parts printed in completely different typefaces. The remarkable typographical composition of the book was my point of departure for reconstructing the stock of books published by the printer Augustijn van Hasselt when he acted as Christopher Plantin's factor first in Vianen and then in Wesel. That analysis is now confirmed by the discovery of a Psalmbook from the same year composed in a similar manner. Plantin's secret enterprise thus acquires a still wider range and we can see even more clearly how eager he was to occupy a position in the profitable market of Bible editions in the vernacular.
