NotesEven though the image sheet is catalogued as CLP/8i/12a/2 and bound in the volume behind the text labelled 12a, it seems likely that this 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.
