Adaptation of a 16th-century printer's mark shown in Joseph Ames, Typographical Antiquities, revised and enlarged by T.F. Dibdin. (London: William Miller, 1810)

Printer's marks of the 16th century are often wonderful iconographical treats. Some of the most interesting featured views of a printing office. This particular image was adapted from the printer's mark of Michael DeRoigny, son-in-law of Badius Ascensius, and also a printer in Paris.
