Some of the plates correspond with plates comprised in Pietro Bertelli's three volumes work "Diversarv[m] nationvm habitvs ... opera Petri Bertellii ... Apud Alciatum Alcia: et Petrum Bertellium, Patauij, 1594-1596" (c.f. copy described by Lipperheide). Various states of Bertelli's work are mentioned by Brunet. Thieme-Becker records several editions: 1589, 1591, 1592 and 1594. Another possible source of the plates is Alexander de Farbris later edition of Bertelli's work "Diversarum nationum ornatus cum suis iconibus. Padova, 1593" (c.f. Brunet).
Consists of forty plates, bound without title page and imprint. Each plate depicts two images, numbered and with Latin captions, chiefly of single figures in Italian costumes.
