  • Place of printing from BM STC Italian and Mortimer; Adams identifies Parma as imprint site
  • Zantani, Venetian collector and patron, was also an amateur artisan who invented a music-printing technique, engraved images of coins, painted, and even embroidered. Together with the engraver Enea Vico, he published "Le imagini con tutti i riversi trovati... "in 1548, which he may actually have printed himself. "Libro primo" was the only volume printed. Cf. Martha Feldman, City Culture and the Madrigal at Venice. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995, pp. 63ff
  • Zantani's two prefaces to readers on p. [2]-[5] of text
  • Printed in roman type
  • Woodcuts: Zantani's device on verso of last leaf (a dog, representing fidelity and loyalty, chained to an olive tree entwined with two scrolls containing mottos "Solus honor" and "Malo mori quam transgredi"); small white historiated initials
  • Engravings: elaborate architectural t.p.--the earliest fully developed engraved t.p. in an Italian book--featuring mythological figures, cherubs, grotesque heads, fruits, and leaves; Zantani's coat of arms appears below title, and his crest, featuring a leopard and a scimitar, is at the base of the left-hand column. Zantani's brief biographies of the first twelve Roman emperors, taken mainly from Suetonius, were illustrated by Vico with twelve portrait medallions atop ornamental cartouches. In addition to the portraits there are 62 full-page engravings, each containing outlines of twelve coins or medals, most filled in, but some left blank. Cf. Mortimer for detailed description of the plates and their arrangement
