Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum (Chicago) has a 1699 Latin edition of Galileo's Dialogo with a portrait of Ptolemy quite different than the 1632 edition which you already have included. It's illustrated in my (Stephenson and Bolt) new book, The Universe Unveiled, p. 125 (and unfortunately, it is mis-described as being the first Latin edition).
