Engraved throughout. The title in French is set in the opening of an architectural frame rendered in perspective, with two standing male figures. Jean Jacques Boissard is twice credited in Latin with designing the plates on the frame above the title, and Robert Boissard is credited a second time with engraving them on the frame below: Robertus Boissardus calpssit Argentinae [Strasbourg]. Some of J.J. Boissard's drawings are after Heinrich Aldegrever and Jacques de Geyn; see Allgem. Künstlerlexikon, article on Boissard, Robert.
