A fine pair of portraits. They are based on Aliprando Caprioli's Ritratti di cento capitani illustri (Rome, 1596), here taken from Pompilio Totti's Ritratti et Elogii di Capitani Illustri of 1635. Totti slightly altered Caprioli's engravings, adding cross-hatching and coats of arms. Sabin 71587 (1647 ed).
