- Curator's comments
- The lower half of the plate printed opposite the title page of the auction catalogue of George Hibbert's library. It reproduces an illumination from the Sforziad, which appears to be that from the version now in the British Library (inv. G.7251).
Hibbert's sale was held by "Mr Evans at his house, No. 93, Pall-Mall" on 16 March (and the 17 following days), 4 May (and the 11 following days) and 25 May (and the 11 following days). The upper part of this page reproduced a miniature of Pope Leo X.
