Biographical information

  • Utrecht (stad) 1612 - 1615
  • Londen (Engeland) 1615 - 1621
    He came to London in 1615 and worked at first almost exclusively for Compton Holland. Simon soon switched publisher, for his plates of 1617-8 were almost all for Sudbury & Humble. Since the Sudbury & Humble address appears to be a later addition to several plates, squeezed into a space not designed to fit it (eg. Viscount Lisle), it may be that Simon first tried to publish his plates himself, before, several months later, going over to Sudbury & Humble. Simon's last plate published in England was in 1621 (British Museum).
