Collaboration from Robert H. van Gent

For the Freiherr portrait you will have to give the full name Freiherr von Schweiger-Lerchenfeld. The 'Freiherr' part is only a title. I am quite sure that other reworked examples of the Thevet portrait will turn up as your search progresses. The figure number (241) that you quote is that in the Dutch edition from which I made the scan. In the German edition, which I do not have myself and which is a bit unwieldy to put on the scanner, the figure number is 516 on page 244. In the Dutch edition certain sections that originally were near the end have been moved to other sections.
