The Frankfurt catalogues tell us a lot about the continental trade of John Bill and John Norton, but they do not tell us enough. Although the evidence of the catalogues is rich and slippery, this chapter argues that it is relatively one-dimensional when set alongside the extraordinary evidence afforded by the letters of Thomas Bodley, and the records of the Officina Plantiniana. These sources not only place the evidence of the catalogues in a longer, broader, and more generous perspective, they also carry us as far as we are ever likely to travel into the very heart of Bill and Norton's tireless activity as international traders, entrepreneurs, and publishers.

Keywords:   John Norton, John Bill, Bodley, Officina Plantiniana
