Comment
A series of prints of the same size, reproducing figures from the Sistine Chapel. Instead of deriving the prints directly from the frescoes, Adamo Scultori rather followed preparatory drawings. Each print bears the engraver's monogram lower left and a serial number lower right. For a general description of the series, see Paolo Bellini's introduction, pp. 64-65.
