This article follows on from my earlier piece in this journal, 'The Van Oldenborch and Vanden Merberghe pseudonyms'. With the demonstration that these were not true people but pseudonyms - the first was even used by various printers - the picture of the history of the Dutch Protestant book has been substantially altered. It was not these 'phantoms' who were the most important publishers in this domain, but Adriaen van Berghen, Matthaeus Crom, and the latter's brother-in-law Steven Mierdmans, while, after 1550, the hitherto unknown Frans Fraet occupied the most prominent position. About half the Dutch-language books which Dr Kronenberg included in her systematic index under the heading Luther: Voor en tegen de Hervorming, appear to date from after 1540 and thus fall actually outside the chronological limits of the Nederlandsche Bibliographie van 1500 tot 1540. We also see that the existing view according to which the role of Antwerp was exhausted after 1540 must be revised. Only after the execution of Fraet at the beginning of 1558 did Emden manage to corner the market. Besides giving a supplementary record of works which have received too early a dating from Nijhoff-Kronenberg, this article gives the titles of a number of theological books which have wrongly been omitted.
