Notes NOTES: This engraving is one of a series of plates produced after drawings executed in an unidentified Italian hand, collected by Peter Paul Rubens and published in engraved form in his book 'I Palazzi di Genova' (Antwerp, 1622). The publication was divided into two parts: 'Palazzi Antichi' and 'Palazzi Moderni' (where this particular image appears as Fig. 67). Subsequent additions appeared in 1652 and 1663 and the book was Rubens' only work on pure architecture.
