Two older Frenchmen, the compositors Juan Franco and Pierre Régnier, are studied in this chapter. Franco studied in Paris before training as a typographer in Lyon where he worked for several years, subsequently being recruited to work in Salamanca. He married in Spain and found employment principally in Salamanca and Medina del Campo, but also augmented his wages by retailing on his own behalf. His trial reveals that Reformist ideas were not only assimilated abroad, but circulated in the Spanish presses. Régnier, who had worked in northern France and England, was also recruited at Lyon by a Barcelona press. He settled in that Catalan city, becoming a master-printer and owner of a press in which he employed numerous fellow-Frenchmen. He eventually fell prey to personal antagonism and commercial rivalry, being denounced to the Inquisition.
