Comment
Plates 1 and 14 of the series are reverse copies after Agostino Musi’s prints and Miller suggests these are probably not by Enea Vico like the other ten. The set is mentioned in the Lafreri stocklist of c. 1573. A set without numbering is also mentioned. A later reissue of the set with Pietro de Nobilis's publisher’s address is in the Escorial collection.
