Philippe de Beaumanoir (c.1247-1296) was a French jurist and royal official. After his studies of law in Orleans, and possibly Bologna, he became bailiff of Clemont in the county of Beauvaisis, then senschal of Poitou and the Saintonge; he managed to hold some very senior positions in the realm. All of this administrative experience helped form the basis to his principal work: "Coustumes de Beauvoisis" of 1283, which was first printed in 1690. This work was later regarded as one of the best works bearing on old French customary law, and was often referred to with high admiration by Montesquieu, who called him "la lumiere de son temps".

Balthasar Moretus (1574-1641) of Antwerp, who became head of the Officina Plantiniana in 1610. This firm of printers, established by his grandfather Christophe Plantin in 1555, continued publishing until 1866, after which it became a museum dedicated to the firm owned by the City of Antwerp. Their most famous publication was Ortelius's atlas, the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', first published 1570, last edition 1624. Balthasar commissioned Peter Paul Rubens (who also worked for the firm producing designs to be engraved) to paint portraits for publication: this engraving appears to be copied from the oil painted by Rubens that still hangs in the Plantin-Moretus Museum.
