Christopher Plantin

(1498 - 1535)

Printer. Active in Antwerp. Although music books made up only a small part of his output, they were excellently produced, starting in 1578, and widely disseminated, in part through the Frankfurt book fairs. His firm's large collection of typefaces included many for music, including ones obtained from the estate of Susato and from Phalèse.
