Production Note

The authorship of this volume is uncertain. A mid-16th century drawing in Florence incorrectly attributed to Cremonini (d.1610) may be by the same hand as this volume, and includes ornament of the type used by Francesco Salviati. Similar figures were drawn by Bartolommeo Bandinelli.
