Summary expansion
In addition to the 58 engraved city views, there are also a detailed explanation for each engraving. The text provides a succinct account of each city and its political nature. The engravings are also detailed, accurately labelled, include the city's coat of arms, and offer an interesting idea of the relationship of the city to its suburbs and surrounding country. Represented are cities such as Fano, Brescia, Orvieto, Gallipoli, and the island of Malta
