For information on the volume see 1997,0928.14.1
For duplicate impressions, see 1871,0812.3444 and Gg,4L.29,
records for which both state that the plate is from Multae et diversae avium species (it could very well be that the plate was published for this series and for Variae quadrupedum species, which it is collated with here); for an impression of a later state published by John King, see Nn,7.2.22 (number "34" added).
See commentary under New Hollstein (Hollar) 1334-1339 for the different series of birds after Francis Barlow, for which the composition and chronology is not established.
