    Dodgson remarks that these Vitruvius illustrations are in fact from an unspecified late edition of Münster's 'Cosmographia' - identification based on a confusing listing in the museum register? As it is not clear which of the Vitruvius editions these clippings are from, they have been indexed under the first edition.
