NotesCLP/8i/12a is the English translation of the original text by Burattini in Italian. Even though the image sheet is catalogued as 12a and bound in the volume behind the text 12a, it seems likely that the image sheet accompanied Burattini's original text on the basis that the label next to the figures says 'Figura', as in the Italian original text, instead of 'Fig.' as in the translation.
