Excerpt from Catalogue of the Plantin-Moretus Museum
Both, it is said, were sons of the illustrious Charles de Tiercelin, who died crowned with glory, but devoid of fortune. His children having to provide for their sustenance by the labour of their hands, resolved to do so with courage. But, that they might not dishonour the arms of their noble ancestors, they assumed the plebeian names of two plants, the plantain and the leek, in French Plantain and Porret. One became a bookseller, the other an apothecary.
Only the last sentence of this story is true. Plantin, after his marriage, lived some time in Paris. In 1549 he settled at Antwerp, which was at that time, toge ther with the Capital of France, the most ourishing town of the north-west of our continent, as a book binder and casket-maker.
