The architectural border, which shows the figure of a scholar (Livy) at his desk inset in the tympanum, is the same for each opening of the three Decades and was formerly used in the Bible translated into Italian by Niccolò Malermi and printed in Venice by Giovanni Ragazzo for Lucantonio Giunta on 15 October 1490 (ISTC 1b00644000), whereas the small vignettes, many of which were signed "F", were already found in the Italian translation of Livy printed at Venice by Joannes Rubeus on 11 February 1493 for Lucantonio Giunta (ISTC il00255000).
The woodcut device on leaf ii7 verso, printed in red in the present copy, corresponds to device C of Lucantonio Giunta (see BMC v 493).
