  • Signatures: a-m8 n-p6 q-r8 s6 t4
  • Woodcuts: title vignette of St. John the Baptist; woodcut above title depicts laurel-crowned Ovid at his desk, accompanied by the three commentators, captioned "Antonius" (Antonio Volsco); "Vber." (Hubertinus); and "Omnibo."

Arthur Hind, in his Introduction to a history of woodcut, notes that the woodcuts are an important example, along with the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, of the increased influence of the Florentine style in the use of white-on-black in book illustration
