Catalogue Note

This fine collection of detailed views and scenes of Venetian life and costume was issued with varying numbers of plates. Some copies contain a dedication printed on the back of the plate of the Gran Consiglio, dated 1610, which is not present in this copy. Lipperheide considers this edition to be somewhat later.
