A recent discovery of a second example of a previously unknown London printer's device (an earlier version of McKerrow 57 used in Paris c. 1512) provides an opportunity to discuss the activity of Paris printers in providing specialist titles for the London market. The two books discussed are a Diurnale Sarum and an Alphabetum hebraicum et graecum printed in Paris for Henry Jacobi in London.
