Summary NoteThe plates all show landscape paintings by Marco Ricci.

In their first state these prints were without letters. In this second state they are numbered and signed.
Responsibility NoteThe title-plate-cum-dedication carries no signature.

The twenty-four numbered plates are all signed as painted by 'Marc: Ricci'; and most carry within the plate the monogram 'DAF' - which repeats the 'D.A.F.' of the title-page, where the initials are given as those of the dedicator, draughtsman, engraver and publisher. They stand for Davide Antonio Fossati.

It is unclear which Antonio Maria Zanetti is named in the title-plate.
