- Curator's comments
- The eight discussed towns are Kampen, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Schoonhoven, Gouda, Rotterdam, Haarlem, and Leiden. For translations of the Dutch inscriptions, see Hollstein (Visscher).
The lower right corner with the publisher's signature is partly missing, and has been reconstructed in ink. It reads "Hendrick Focken Exc." For this entry, it has been assumed that this information is correct.
