During the 16th century, printing presses, using moveable metal type invented around 1470, disseminated pioneer texts of New Learning to growing numbers of the literate, nourishing the profound intellectual revolution that introduced early modern times in Renaissance Europe. Cristoffels Plantin established his printing firm in Antwerp in 1555. Plantin's early publications included Ortelius's World Atlas; Vesalius's Human Anatomy; Stevin's Art of Decimals and several of the works of Justus Lipsius. He was also an official printer of religious texts to both the Catholic Spanish Empire and the Protestant Dutch Republic. This 17th century blank book title page, showing Antwerp Cathedral, is a re-issue, printed in 1987 in Plantin's workshop which is now part of the Plantin-Moretus Printing Museum. The re-issue was printed to demonstrate the early presses of the firm.
