According to Lehrs, Meckenem copied the designs, at least in regards to the alignment of the roundels, after the Master ES.
The majority of the roundels have been cut out; an entire set of eight intact sheets is not known to exist.
Four roundels from the present engraving - the Evangelists' symbols - are copied after Schongauer.
