Comment
Following Charles Antoine Jombert's catalog, De Vesme lists 47 plates under the title Second recueil [...]. Phyllis Massar, however, suggests to delete 16 prints from the catalog that neither she, nor De Vesme have ever seen. According to the inscription on the first state of this plate, a part of the series was published by Jacques van Merle, while others bear the signature of Israel Henriet. Therefore Jolanta Talbierska doubts that they would form one homogeneous series. While Jombert and De Vesme dated the series c. 1646, Talbierska considered that Van Merle used the address written on the frontispiece only after 1651 and she thought that the series might have been made between 1649 and 1654. She also suggested that Della Bella sent the plates from Florence to Paris in several steps, see Jolanta Talbierska, Stefano della Bella (1610-1664): Etchings from the Collection of the Prints Room of the Warsaw University Library, Warsaw 2001, p. 147.
