  • The two Getty copies have different settings of type and in part different ornaments in pt. 2, 2*1-3*4 and pt. 3, A2-E6. In addition letterpress printed on leaves with the ports. of Boissard and de Bry shows the same sort of differences.
  • In Getty c. 1 the 3rd pt. opens with the engraved t.p. followed by an unsigned leaf, leaves A2-4, and another unsigned leaf. They correspond to gatherings [dagger] A in c. 2, but without the two ports. which are not present in c. 1.
  • In Getty c. 2, the pt. number to which each gathering belongs has been written in brown ink at the lower left of its first leaf. In addition signature letters have been supplied for the first leaves of signatures in the unsigned sequence of engravings that conclude pt. 6. Cancel impressions of the plates at pt. 2, E2v and E3v have been mounted onto the copies that were bound in. The bird's-eye view of ancient Rome in pt. 2 lacks the legend at foot, keyed to sites in the view. Printed text on verso of engraving at N1, pt. 2, supplied as cancel sheet.
  • Two engravings not part of the edition have been bound in c. 2 at the end of pt. 5. The first is a reversed copy of Hendrik Goltzius's engraving after Raphael's fresco of Isaiah in the church of Sant' Agostino, Rome (platemark 20 x 13 cm.). It may be an earlier state of the print mentioned by Passavant as having Goltzius's name, the date 1592, and the address of Clem. de Jonghe, as these are lacking in the present print (see Raphael d'Urbin et son père Giovanni Santi, 85). The second engraving by Sebastiano di Re depicts the two Roman marble dogs known as the Molossi, now in the Pio-Clementine Museum (platemark 28.4 x 37 cm.; tipped onto stub at centerfold). Imprint: Romae : In Aedibus Saluianis, 1560.
  • Binding, c. 1 (in 2 vols.): 18th-century diced calfskin, rebacked. Boards tooled in gilt with single fillets along margins and on edges, turn-ins gilt tooled. The new spines are tooled in gilt with title, author and vol. no., with decorative elements in blind. Page edges pale yellow. Both vols. have ownership statement at foot of t.p. of Antonius Mauclercq.
  • Binding, c. 2 (in 3 vols.): vellum. Shelf mark written at head of spine: B / 20. 6. 20[21, 22]. Below the shelf mark is written author, brief title, and pt. numbers. Centered on front pastedowns is Giovanni Muzio's etched bookplate by Giacomo Manzù, covered with a lineblock reproduction of the plate that omits both names. Written at head of first t.p. in each vol.: As usus D. Pauli Cannon Clerici Regularis Congregationis de Somasca.
