ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: October 5, 2012:
The plate list calls for 80 engravings, but there are actually 82 including portraits of Holbein and his wife. The first 12 of the portraits are anonymous sitters, and there is no letterpress text for them. The balance are accompanied by biographical notes.
There are no apparent losses.
