Portrait bust to the right within oval with rectangular frame of Franciscus Raphelengius, also known as Frans van Ravelingen (1539-1597). He was a Dutch scholar, printer and bookseller based in Leiden. He was the son-in-law of printer Christoffel Plantin. In 1585 he was put in charge of the Leiden branch of his printing house and from 1586 he was appointed as academy printer. In 1587 he also became professor of Hebrew at the University of Leiden. He contributed to the Biblia Polyglotta. His scientific printing qualities were one of the reasons that Joseph Justus Scaliger settled in Leiden in 1593. Copper engraving, maker unknown. Made around 1700. Presumably a book illustration.
