- Curator's comments
- Bsasan acquired all Weirotter's plates from his estate, after his death in 1771. The date of this re-issue is given in the manuscript note tipped into this volume. They acquired from other sources impressions of those prints of which the plates were lacking and these are the ones that have been pasted in. The prints after his designs were either from plates that Bassan alreay owned, or were bought in from the publishers that owned then.
A temporary record, pending the individual cataloguing of each print in the volume.
