An unrecorded copy of the Officium illustrated with 16 small engravings and printed by Plantin in 1578/9 which has recently come to light in an antiquarian bookshop confirms Karen Lee Bowen's hypothesis of 1994 that a number of engravings with the same format occurring in Plantin's Missale of 1585 belong to a series which Plantin must have commissioned from the engraver Jan Wierix after the designs of Peeter van der Borcht shortly after 1572. The series in the newly discovered book is anonymous, but the engravings are copied so carefully that they may be added to the oeuvre of Jan Wierix and Peeter van der Borcht respectively. Some of these engravings were previously entirely unknown.
