With several indicated places of publication first is mostly the head office, international branches can be called in the following.

Print locations can be as fictitious as whole Imprints - Cologne was in the early modern times most popular fictitious print location - on title pages a safe indication for the fact that the available writing was explosive (or as allegedly explosive better to sell itself should). Cologne would have been the close French border theoretically for the pressure of international writings outside of of France an ideal location, suffered actually however so strict censorship that printers rather printed of the Hague, Amsterdam and Rotterdam which illegaly to France and legally into the remainder of Europe went. The signal of fictitious print location could give also a fantasy name: Utopia, free city, or far-removes improbable place. Christian Reuter wanted to have in such a way given to the 1690ern the individual volumes of its Schelmuffsky in pc. to Malo, Schelmerode and Rome to the pressure.
