562 # # $a Each plate is pasted on the recto of a leaf. The verso of the preceding leaf carries a handwritten description in ink, in Dutch. The recto of the first leaf is inscribed in ink with a note in Dutch or Flemish describing the content and ascribing the plates to 'hierom: wirex' and the designs to 'Bern: passigani'. The last plate is followed by a leaf inscribed in pencil, 'by HW - 32 AW - 10 JW - 2 - 44' and 'after Passeri - 43 De Vos - 1 - 44'.

A slip of paper has been tipped in, facing pl. [23], which shows the Deposition of Christ. The slip is inscribed in ink, 'The existence of the opposite print is doubted by Sir Joshua Reynolds in his journey to Flanders & Holland - from which print, Rubens is there said to have borrowed the composition of his Descent of the Cross.'

These 44 plates have possibly been extracted from the 153 plates printed in Gerónimo Nadal's Evangelicae historiae imagines (Antwerp, 1593) and in his Adnotationes et meditationes in Evangelia (Antwerp, 1595).
