Footnotes

  • Plantin printed two editions in Italian of Guicciardni's finely illustrated description of the Low Countries, in 1581 and 1588. The present copy bears the title of the latter edition, but the text corresponds to the earlier one, its collation matching that given by Adams, except that signature Y in the second alphabet has one leaf instead of two (but appears complete), and there are six rather than ten preliminary leaves.
